'The orchestra's first concert was held in the Old Town Hall in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, but the audience was very small. Choral singing at the time was a very strong tradition in The Potteries and the launch of a new purely orchestral music society was thought of as something superfluous. In fact many local choirs shunned the orchestra. Its founders, John Cope and Madame Reymond, were often ridiculed by fellow choir masters but Cope and his orchestra carried on. Over 110 years later, the orchestra still thrives playing four major symphony concerts each year, performing in venues in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, with renowned conductors and guest soloists and supported by The Friends of the NSSO.'

'In 1979 the City of Stoke-on-Trent Amateur Operatic Society set up a youth section, which soon became known as "Stoke Youth". In 2006, following the decision to wind up the "Adult" Operatic Society, a small group of committed & determined individuals took the view that they wished to continue to support the talented young performers of "Stoke Youth" and take the personal risk of backing the establishment of a new volunteer run registered charity Stoke Youth Musical Theatre Company. Stoke Youth continues to stage challenging performances & training to meet the aim of "developing young people".'
