The orchestra experiments with a myriad of repertoire from contemporary pop songs, western classical to traditional Chinese music. With the support of NYP and the SAO Ms. Karen Ang, NYPCO has staged many successful performances locally and in overseas. In 2007, the orchestra competed at the 18th Australian International Music Festival in Sydney and received full marks - a first is the history of the competition. They were then invited to play for the Command Performance at the Sydney Opera House. In 2008, the inaugural Hong Kong International Music Festival was held and the orchestra performed at the HK Disneyland, HK Cultural Center and some of the members had the chance to perform with the top-notch professionals from the HK Chinese Orchestra. NYPCO was also invited to perform for the Beautiful Sunday series at the Esplanade in '06 '07 and '09. It is a monthly program that is free for the public to inculcate the public with the love for the arts. In conjunction with the Youth Olympic Games 2010, NYPCO was invited by Esplanade to present a concert titled Supah Heroes in the Youth Festival 2010.
