Learning Orchestra Xmas 2015
The Learning Orchestras Charitable Trust celebrated its 20th birthday in 2015.

From small beginnings as an evening class, led voluntarily by David Evans, with a handful of enthusiastic adult students we now have 2 orchestras: Intermediate (Grade 4/5) and Main Orchestra (Grade 6+), each meeting for weekly rehearsals in central London.

From the start the aim was to give aspiring instrumentalists the opportunity to play in an orchestral setting at a much earlier stage of their musical education (or re-education) than is usual.

With the start of the Intermediate Orchestra in September 2005, this philosophy was re-endorsed.

Our Trustees are long serving members of the orchestra who combine a love of music with a wealth of experience from other walks of life.
