London Repertoire Orchestra

If you love playing in orchestra but get a little bored of repetitive rehearsals then the LRO might be what you are looking for…

WHAT WE DO

At LRO we play through a different work each week and enjoy making excellent progress during that session. We occasionally perform and 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.

WHERE WE MEET

St Joseph’s Church Hall

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.
