The EUCO gave its first concerts in 1981 and soon gained an international reputation as a musical ambassador for the European Union. Funding from the European Commission enabled EUCO to make its name familiar worldwide with tours to Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines, North, South and Central America, North Africa, India and the Middle East as well as across Europe.
It regularly performs at major concert halls throughout the UK and in live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, the Bath Festival with Alison Balsom and a tour of Christmas concertos with Nicola Benedetti.
The schedule since 2013 has included tours to Spain, Germany, Luxemburg, Turkey, Malta and most recently to Egypt.
'A demanding and richly varied programme brought great pleasure to the listeners who could only go home consumed by the music' (Rheinische Post).
