We are delighted to announce that the National Schools Symphony Orchestra (NSSO) has been shortlisted for the Best Classical Music Education Initiative in Music Teacher magazine’s annual Awards for Excellence.
This award honours an education project which has used classical music in an innovative way, shown musical excellence and has had a positive impact on a significant number of participants.
Over the past three years, NSSO has grown from two ensembles to four and now attracts more than 200 talented young instrumentalists and singers from around the UK and internationally each year.
NSSO works incredibly hard to offer means-tested bursary support to enable as many young musicians to access our courses as possible, and we are particularly proud to be able to work closely with the Nucleo Project, an inspiring ‘music for social action’ programme based in West London.
The nomination is a real testament to the dedication and hard work of the NSSO team, its tutors, conductors, pastoral and management staff as well as the numerous members of the Malvern College community who have contributed to the success of our courses over the last few years.
Voting can be made via Classic FM’s website: please click here.
