The Orchestra
We’re proud to be one of the most successful and exciting privately run orchestras in the UK. We use musicians from all over Britain. Whether we’re north or south what all of our players have in common is tremendous musical talent and technical ability across all genres, and crucially, they always give their all. The enthusiasm is always evident – whether it be a small group of musicians to an intimate audience, a recorded film score at Abbey Road Studios, or a full 84-piece orchestra at an outdoor event.
Performances
Over the years we’ve done it all. We’ve played in front of the biggest audiences and behind the biggest stars both nationally and internationally. We’ve been in blockbuster films from Brief Encounter to Alice in Wonderland, on numerous private and corporate events and we regularly appear at Shuttleworth Flying Proms and onboard Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 for her Proms crossing. We've had the pleasure of accompanying Russell Watson, Hayley Westenra, Nicky Spence, Blake, Goldfrapp, Gardar Cortes, Lesley Garrett, Kiri te Kanawa, Kanye West and Vanessa Mae. We've also supported Sir Cliff Richard at The Royal Albert Hall and Shirley Bassey at the Wembley Arena. More recently we backed Alfie Boe on his 'Serenata' tour in 2014 and Katherine Jenkins on her 'Home Sweet Home' tour in 2015. “I have had the privilege of performing with the NSO for over 10 years. Always incorporating the very best players, they are a joy to share the stage with & have become great friends.” Katherine Jenkins
Get In Touch
We’d be delighted to hear from you. We pride ourselves on flexibility and when it comes to the performance of live classical music there’s nothing we won’t consider doing. We’ve appeared as a full orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall and as soloists for intimate performances, try us.
