At the heart of VaCO courses is the drive to present outstanding live concerts and recitals in a variety of locations and settings.
VaCO is committed to bringing live music to the widest possible audience. We deliver high quality concerts across a diverse landscape and are particularly keen to perform in areas where such events might be rare or infrequent. We like to combine these concerts with workshops and events in local schools, where possible, to engage and encourage the next generation in live music-making.
Attending the Vacation Chamber Orchestra courses not only enabled me to perform music at an extremely high level but it also introduced me to the wonderful community of people that come together to make this an exceptionally successful organisation. Rarely do you find a course, which offers such a high level of performing experience coupled with performing in some of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
Fond memories of the courses for me would be the gatherings after concerts to sing songs and tell tales and also being given the opportunity to perform as a soloist with the orchestra during the summer of 2011.
