A warm welcome from Steve McDade for NSSO Academy members 2021

I can’t wait for the NSSO Academy course that I have the honour of conducting this year!

The NSSO courses, which bring young musicians together from all over the country, are a great deal of fun, coupled with hard work all in the stunning surroundings and facilities of Malvern College. I am especially delighted that the NSSO courses are going ahead, as youngsters have been starved of live music making for what to them seems like an eternity – I know it does for me!

The central piece in the short Academy course is Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint Saens.

The highest praise I can give to our courses is that so many of the students ask to come back year after year and so if you are looking for a course this year, you have now come across a fabulous one – and there are just a few places still available!
