The New London Orchestra celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013. The NLO was founded by its Artistic Director, Ronald Corp OBE, with a mission to be the most adventurous and innovative chamber orchestra in London. This founding principle is demonstrated by its deep-rooted commitment to quality music that is neglected and rarely heard in concert. In the past it has championed composers such as Martinu, Ibert, Thomson, Ravel, Honegger, Roussel, Kabalevsky and Sibelius. Through its Adventures in Music® brand the NLO works to engage new and undernourished audiences by investing in ambitious creative partnerships, and promoting excellence, while remaining accessible and affordable.
