Our work with schools has never been more important than it is today. In far too many schools, music is becoming a casualty of competing demands on school time and budgets. Countless studies have demonstrated that music is fundamental to a child’s intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development, and that children who learn to play a musical instrument do better in other disciplines, such as mathematics, languages, and creative writing. At our school workshops, the Nonesuch Orchestra aims to share the excitement and enrichment of live classical music with children of every background, and hopes to encourage as many of them as possible to embark on learning to play an instrument.

Our lunchtime public concerts are often free of charge to the audience and bring excellent music-making and exciting repertoire to the community.

By giving your financial support to the orchestra, you will be helping us continue this vital work.
