Classic FM are sponsoring the award for the Best Classical Music Education Initiative in Music Teacher magazine's annual Awards for Excellence. This award will honour an education project which has used classical music in an innovative way, shown musical excellence and had a positive impact on a significant number of participants.
The NCO is in fact five age-banded orchestras for young musicians aged seven to 13, supported by a number of regional training orchestras around the country, a structure which gives hundreds of young musicians the chance to play with the NCO every year. Like the National Youth Orchestra, the NCO runs an outreach programme which includes days for any young musician to come along and experience orchestral playing. As well as being known for an exceptional standard of music-making, the NCO also runs a pioneering young conductors’ course.
