National Children’s Orchestras

Under 13 Orchestra Spring Concert

Sat 6 Apr 2024

Featuring some of the UK’s most remarkable young musicians. The National Children’s Orchestras of Great Britain is enormously proud to present its 2024 Under 13 Orchestra at Lighthouse Poole for their performance following their week-long Spring residential.

At just 12 and 13 years old, the amount the young musicians of NCO’s Under 13 Orchestra can achieve in a week of playing is truly impressive! As well as rehearsing this concert programme they’ve had creative composition and wellbeing sessions and lots of time to make friends and get to know each other. This concert is the culmination of their brilliant hard work.

The concert’s programme and conductor will be announced in late January 2024.

NCO’s concerts are for everyone. Join us as we appreciate the sheer joy and energy that can only be experienced in the presence of a wonderful children’s orchestra and be part of supporting the next generation of musicians.
