Sophie and George Win Places in NCO

Grange School siblings, Sophie, in Year III of the Senior School, and George Akka, currently in Prep 6, have both successfully auditioned for the National Children’s Orchestra (NCO) meaning that they have retained their places in the orchestra for 2017.

The siblings earned their places in the orchestra despite competition from around 1,200 children of the highest musical standard from all over Great Britain.

Every place in the orchestra is strictly earned from scratch, whether you have previously been a member of the NCO or are applying for the first time.

Sophie and George will take part in week-long residential courses in Lancashire and Dorset, before performing concerts at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Colston Hall in Bristol and the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
