Venezuela Children Symphonic Orchestra

Founded by the famous Venezuelan musician José Antonio Abreu, the National Children's Orchestra of Venezuela (NCOV) was designated UNESCO Artist for Peace in October 1998.

Convinced that "music is an irreplaceable instrument for the rapprochement between peoples", José Antonio Abreu is at the origin of a vast network of orchestras of children and young Venezuelan, gathering more than 150 orchestras representing more than 100,000 young musicians. These orchestras are dedicated to promote music in all strata of Venezuelan society.

The National Children’s Orchestra of Venezuela is one of these orchestras and appeared in numerous prestigious events worldwide. In 1998, they played at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

This action is part of the project "Music at the service of Public Action", which advocates music education as a way to help young people.
