We are a friendly amateur orchestra and registered charity based in Streatham, South London. We are conducted by prize-winning students from the Royal Academy of Music, where many of our soloists come from too.
We enjoy playing from a wide repertoire, and perform 3 or 4 concerts a year, mainly in local concert venues, although past locations include Southwark and St George's Cathedrals, Arundel Castle, Croydon Clocktower and Fairfield Hall. We also take part in concerts with St Bartholomew's Polyphony Choir. We raise money for charity through our concerts, and have raised tens of thousands of pounds during the 40 years we've been established. During the last year we have played for charities in aid of those caught up in the Syrian conflict, the homeless at Christmas, the St John's Church Restoration Fund, and an education programme for the disadvantaged in Pakistan.
