This academic year has been a hugely exciting one, with the return to in-person lessons, the launch of our new website, and the running of our national Instrument Donation bank. The culmination of this hive of activity was the return of our annual performance, with nearly 200 children performing together after a year’s hiatus. It was a very special evening. 

The concerts bring a real sense of community, and “it's really good to see other people; it's good to see the children come and prepare themselves and then really get to enjoy the moment as well”. A Nucleo parent. 

“When I played in my first concert in front of all the parents it made me really happy. I was nervous because it was the first time my Mum would see me playing in front of lots of people. It made me feel proud.” A Nucleo student. 

Please sign up to our newsletter to be the first to see the filmed performance. In the meantime, thanks to your support, we are able to continue to transform lives through music. On behalf of all the talented young musicians at Nucleo, thank you.

Thanks to your continued generosity we can look back on last year as one to remember in a positive light. The highlight was a special performance by the North Kensington Children’s Orchestra together with violinist Braimah Kanneh-Mason, singer Ella Knight, and conductor Natalia Luis-Bassa. It was a real joy for our young musicians to play together as an ensemble once again, and very exciting for them to do so alongside professional artists. The recording can be watched here

“I really enjoyed working with Natalia because she made it really fun and really motivated me to play at my best.” 

“I really enjoyed playing with the two soloists because I loved the experience of playing with great musicians.” 

This year looks set to be even more exciting, with in-person lessons in full swing, the launch of our new website, and the running of our national Instrument Donation bank. We are also looking forward to being back in the room with our favourite audience-members soon. Please sign up to our newsletter for upcoming performance dates. In the meantime, thanks to your support, we are able to continue to transform lives through music. On behalf of all the talented young musicians at Nucleo, thank you.

Thanks to your support we have been able to rise to the challenge of the past 18 months. A particular high point was a special performance by the North Kensington Children’s Orchestra together with violinist Braimah Kanneh-Mason, singer Ella Knight, and conductor Natalia Luis-Bassa. The North Kensington Children’s Orchestra Unmuted! project gave our young musicians the opportunity to meet and hear from the professional musicians in a Q&A session, take part in online masterclasses and play alongside them. 

It also provided a chance for young people of colour, who make up most of our musicians, to connect with two Black professional artists and learn from their experiences. Musicians of colour are a very small minority in the world of classical music at professional level. The same is true of female conductors. Braimah, Ella and Natalia have been inspiring role models for our young musicians. 

‘I loved playing with Braimah because he gave us lots of tips and advice on how to play the pieces and also he improvised on the way he played and gave us a few improvisation tips.’ 

It was a real joy for our young musicians to play together as an ensemble once again, and very exciting for them to do so alongside professional artists. The recording can be watched here

We are delighted to now be back teaching in person and we’re looking forward to a day not too far off when we can be back in the room with our favourite audience-members – we miss you all! On behalf of all the children at Nucleo, thank you for transforming lives through music.
