This official visit, was facilitated by the Ministry of the Arts and Multiculturalism, under a government-to-government cultural exchange programme between T&T and China. This is just one of the many exchanges, to arise from the Chinese President’s visit, to the twin island state, back in June.

Formed in late two thousand and seven, the players that make up the NSSO, are selected through a rigorous audition process, for both the high quality of their technical skills, and music reading abilities.
