Serving the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont
The Newport Area Community Orchestra is a community based ensemble dedicated to the Northeast Kingdom and the surrounding communities. This orchestra is dedicated to quality performances in a setting that provides an educational and cultural relationship between musicians and audience. In addition, NACO's mission is to foster excellence and innovation in the arts within the community, as well as a sense of pride and accomplishment. It serves the student communities of North Country Union High School, Lake Region Union High School, United Christian Academy, and Stansted Academy. Students are encouraged to join the orchestra, including strings, winds, percussion, and brass. NACO presents three annual concerts, one in the fall and one in the spring plus a special fundraiser concert each spring for the benefit of the Haskell Opera House. The orchestra also performs at other local venues during the year.
