“The ECCO orchestra for me is a free space of different instruments, different languages, different backgrounds. We are diverse and that’s what makes us special.”

David, ECCO Player


The overall aim of the ECCO (Ethnic Contemporary Classical Orchestras) is to catalyse and inspire social change and creative engagement with cultural diversity, giving artistic expression to families and communities. 

About the ECCO

Established by Musiko Musika in 2009, and based at the Lyric Hammersmith, the ECCO is a project to create youth music ensembles that reflect the diversity and musical interests of the young players and their families. Rooted in, but not constrained by tradition, the ECCO is based on the concept of a classical orchestra but reaches far beyond it in terms of instrumentation, repertoire and approach. The parents and families of the young musicians are also directly involved in the project, having a key role in connecting the ECCO culturally to the diverse communities of the families.
