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.
