WHAT WE DO

At LRO we play through a different work each week and enjoy making excellent progress during that session. We rarely perform, although there is growing demand for us to play for charity concerts and with choral societies. When playing for concerts we dedicate one full LRO session to rehearsing each piece and have a full rehearsal on the day of the concert, so there is always a large range of works played each term.

OUR NEXT CONCERTS

Saturday 26th April 2014

St James’s Piccadilly 19:30

Brahms: Academic Festival Overture
Elgar: ‘Cello Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5

Soloist: Chiara Enderle
Leader: Tina Bowles
Conductor: David Cutts

WHEN WE MEET

LRO meets on Wednesday evenings, 19:00 – 21:30, during term times, with a break for half term.

WHERE WE MEET

St Joseph’s Church Hall
15 Lamb’s Passage
EC1Y 8LE

The Church and hall building was originally a Victorian School, it is situated in the right angle bend in Lamb’s Passage. See map…

Underground Stations: Old Street, Moorgate, Barbican

HOW IT WORKS

We do not have a permanent conductor and are therefore able to invite from a pool of freelance professionals who would not be able to commit to a weekly rehearsal.

Wind players audition for positions and are a required to attend all sessions or to provide a deputy.

String players can come along when they are able; ideal if you would like to play in an orchestra but cannot commit to a weekly session.

WHAT IT COSTS

Full Term £65 (£35 concession)
Per session: £7.00 (£4.00 concession)
Concession rates apply to students, unwaged and pensioners.
Student String Players: Free of Charge.
