The COE celebrates its 40th anniversary!

Dear friends, followers, listeners, supporters & fans!

On 18th May 2021, we celebrate a very significant anniversary for the COE – 40 years of wonderful music-making since that first launch concert at the Merchant Taylor’s Hall in London!

To commemorate this, every day for the 40 days before our birthday we have shared highlights and memories on our social media pages, in roughly chronological order, of our journey from a crazy idea to becoming the incredible orchestra we all know and love today. It was our “Countdown To Forty” and we have now published all the content on our website as well, since it is such a wonderful collection of memories.

Find out more on our dedicated page #COE40.
