National Children's Orchestras

Young musicians from National Children’s Orchestras performed at the House of Commons in March, at the launch of the Children’s Commissioner’s The Big Ambition.

The specially formed NCO quintet played to an audience including Robin Walker MP, the Children's Commissioner Rachel de Souza, her Youth Ambassadors, assembled guests, as they shared stories and results from a 3 year project which heard from one million children across England, about what they want from politicians ahead of the next General Election.

The rest of the 2024 NCO programme has also kicked off in style this spring with seven 100-strong orchestras of remarkable young musicians undertaking their orchestral weekends and residential weeks before performing to assembled families, friends and members of the public!
