A note from our Chairman


I am delighted to have been invited to Chair the Board of the New Palm Court Orchestra and glad to be supported by an experienced and energetic Board. This appointment is important to me because of my strong appreciation for the arts and in particular the cultural contribution of musical ensembles. I was keen to take on this position because of the talent, vision and drive of our Artistic Director to deliver audiences with contemporary and evocative performances. This passion is clearly translated through each of our musicians and is a clear point of difference for the Orchestra.


With a strong and committed Board now established, the NPCO looks forward to taking some significant next steps in the coming 12 months. An exciting 2015 concert season has already generated great interest in the unique performance offering of the Orchestra.


On behalf of the Board, I thank you for your continued support at this important time in our journey. We look forward to seeing you soon, for what will be an outstanding 2016 for the NPCO.


Warm regards,



David Brennan
