Our mission in music
The Nelson County Community Orchestra provides an ongoing opportunity for residents of Nelson County and the surrounding area to experience the joy of playing music together, presenting free public concerts. In collaboration with other local arts groups, we seek to create unique interactive performances that showcase a variety of musical genres that will inspire, motivate and support a new generation of orchestral musicians.
The NCCO welcomes musicians of all skill levels, as well as those returning to music with no audition. Rehearsals take place on Mondays at 7 PM in the new addition at the Rockfish Presbyterian Church in Nellysford. See our Contact page for directions.
The String Education Program (SEP) provides youths access to string instruments and instruction, leading to other musical opportunities and a lifelong love of music. Click here for more information about our SEP.
It is our hope that this orchestra will become an advocate for music education in our community, and an inspiration to all who may want to pursue their musical interests. Contact us with questions or suggestions.
