National Children’s Orchestra


Whilst many of her choir friends were singing at Woodley Festival, Emma (UI) was in London with other musicians for the National Children’s Orchestra Project Programme.

The NCO has a number of orchestras that meet yearly for weekly residentials as well as Project programmes for non-residential weekends throughout the year.


Emma thoroughly enjoyed her weekend in London meeting like minded musicians (aged 8 -14) and enjoyed playing music by Strauss and Florence Price as well as being lucky enough to play music specially written for the NCO by Ryan Linham – NCO Mambo, NCO Stomp and Windrush.  The weekend finished with a special performance for parents and Emma is looking forward to the next one in June.
