Mission Statement

Founded in 2020 in America's heartland, the National Composers Orchestra (NCO) advances orchestral and chamber music through the performance and promotion of the music of living composers. Our mission is to present new music that is beautiful, dramatic, evocative, and emotive by a diverse array of emerging and established composers with ties to the United States.


NCO strives to support artists at various stages in their career, foster creativity through the arts for learners of all ages, provide professional development for emerging composers and performers, and create a vibrant community of artists, creators, audience members, and patrons. The NCO is a showcase orchestra for the great music of our time.
