A Brief Introduction
For over 20 years the National Schools Symphony Orchestra has provided intensive, high quality orchestral experience for young players aged 9-19 years old.
The annual course provides a stimulating and rewarding mix of individual coaching by expert tutors, playing in small ensembles, sectional and full rehearsals, and a final concert in a major national venue. The essence of the week is the hallmark balance of concentrated music making and a vibrant social regime masterminded by a hugely experienced and committed pastoral team.
Malvern College, the home of NSSO, is in a spectacular location, easily accessed by rail and road. Accommodation is comfortable and the catering, for all dietary requirements, is exceptionally fine. The sports and leisure facilities, of which we enjoy the use, are second to none.
The NSSO Malvern College Scholarship offers 50% fee remission to the leader of each orchestra
NSSO offers important experience to those who aspire to membership of the National Youth Orchestra (NYO) as well as continuing opportunities for those who have been members of the National Children’s Orchestra (NCO). However, the single annual residential course is also well suited to those talented pupils with wide ranging interests and commitments for whom music is important, but possibly not a career or higher education goal.

We are delighted that all three orchestras will be performing once again in 2017 at The Malvern Theatres. The Forum theatre has wonderful sight lines and a good acoustic, providing a marvellous venue for our closing celebration of a week’s hard work, at the end of another successful course.
Nestling at the foot of the Malvern Hills, Malvern Theatres is a major centre for the arts in the West Midlands and is a short walk from Malvern College. Home of the famous Malvern Festivals, founded by Bernard Shaw and Barry Jackson in 1929, the theatre underwent a lottery-funded refurbishment in 1997. Hailed both locally and nationally as a model of artistic and architectural excellence, Malvern Theatres boasts one of the most diverse selection of plays, music, comedy, dance, film and education work to be found under a single roof anywhere in the country.
