The New London Community Orchestra seeks to serve New London and the surrounding region by providing an opportunity for volunteer musicians to play while also offering outreach to the community in the form of concerts and music education.
The New London Community Orchestra is an organization with a dual mission: We seek to provide a supportive environment for community musicians of all levels to play and perform orchestral music, and we also seek to create the next generation of music lovers by providing free string instrument lessons to local students.
In order to achieve this mission, our orchestra is made up of volunteer musicians who pay annual dues to cover the operating expenses of the group. At the same time, proceeds from the concerts we perform each season go to support Music City Strings, our free music education program. We also provide free concerts for nursing homes and retirement communities.
Music City Strings employs experienced string teachers and provides free violin viola and cello lessons. Funding for the program comes from donations collected at NLCO concerts, contributions received from individuals and businesses in the community, and grants from a variety of charitable organizations and foundations.
