About us

Aurora Orchestra flickered into life in 2004 as a group of like-minded friends who wanted to share their love of music with new audiences.

Under the continuing direction of Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon, today Aurora is one of Europe’s leading chamber orchestras. But we’re still driven by the same sense of camaraderie, adventure and enjoyment which brought us together.  We believe music has the power to change your life, whoever you are.

We spend our time with sounds, trying to make them speak more beautifully, more immediately and with more intensity than you might think possible. In a world of distraction, we invite you to be moved, overjoyed and astonished; to step inside a place where music sounds its colours.
