NSSO Taster Day at Malvern College

The ideal way to find out about NSSO and our summer courses.


NSSO Orchestras – Join us for a programme of coaching and rehearsal. This is the ideal way to find out about NSSO and our summer courses or even just to enjoy aspirational music-making with our team of instrumental tutors, led by our Artistic Director, John Madden. Our NSSO orchestras are defined by musical ability and age, and are open to talented musicians aged 9–19, of grade 3 standard and above.


New for 2019 ~ The NSSO Chorus enjoy a day of singing coaching with our chorus master Jonathan Brown.  A taster to find out if our summer course is for you.  Open to enthusiastic choral singers aged 11-19.


The Taster Day will end with an informal concert which parents and friends are invited to attend.
