ECO was founded by Lawrence Leonard and Arnold Goldsbrough in the late forties. Its name was changed to the current one after the expansion of the repertoire in the early sixties. It played with the same group size until it got associated with the Aldeburgh Festival. This was the time when it played at the premiers of Benjamin Britten's Curfew River, Owen Wingrave and Mid Summer Night's Dream. Apart from these, Britten has also recorded several other works and also conducted the orchestra on different occasions.
The orchestra worked with a number of guest conductors like Daniel Barenboim, Raymond Leppard and Collin Davis till it appointed the first principal conductor, Jeffry Tate.

Currently, the orchestra is doing projects with John Williams, Julian Lloyd Webber, Tenebrae and Anne Akiko Meyers.
