Going back to rehearsals

We're almost back! We're dipping a (sanitised) toe in the water and will be starting up some socially distanced rehearsals the 17th of May.

Watch this space for more details.

If you'd like to play with us, please send your cv to members@londoncityorchestra.com

Orchestra Vacancies

The London City Orchestra is looking for musicians to join our orchestra.

We are looking for:

  • Violas

  • Double basses

  • French Horns
  • Trombones

  • Percussion

With Monday rehearsals in the City, we produce top quality concerts at venues all over London performing varied and challenging repertoire. We are looking for grade 8+ standard and a good level of orchestral experience and commitment. Please send your CV or a brief summary of your orchestral experience to Amanda at members@londoncityorchestra.com

Repertoire for our next concert (26th of June 2021):

  • Symphony No. 8 (Dvořák)

If you are interested in any of the positions or being a regular deputy for the London City Orchestra, please contact Amanda at members@londoncityorchestra.com and state your full name, mobile number, instrument and a short background about your playing history.


All members are required to audition for their place in the orchestra by way of playing a short series of excerpts to our conductor. This is merely to judge if you are able to play to the standard that is conducted within a normal rehearsal and to aid with seating arrangements.

Please note that the first rehearsal for new members is free, in order to give you a chance to try us out. After that fees are payable by bank transfer (preferable), cheque or cash.
