Northern Chamber Orchestra, Manchester (Chamber Orchestra)

Founded: 1967 - Manchester, England

Formed in 1967, the orchestra has established itself as one of England’s finest chamber ensembles. Though often augmented to meet the requirements of the concert programme, the orchestra normally contains 24 musicians and performs both in concert and on disc without a conductor. Their repertoire ranges from the Baroque era to music of our time, and they have gained a reputation for imaginative programme planning.

Concerts have taken the orchestra throughout the North of England and it has received four major European bursaries for its achievements in the community. With a series of recordings for Naxos the orchestra made its debut on disc.
