We currently have room for more strings and brass players.  Don’t worry if you’re out of practice – come along to a rehearsal and give us a try!

Rehearsals are weekly on Tuesday evenings, from 7:30pm until 9:30pm, and the schedule follows the school year i.e. with breaks for holidays and half terms.  We rehearse at our concert venue St Mellitus Church, N4 3AG

Some of our members are in the medical or related professions but this is in no way obligatory and most are not. A good level of orchestral music experience is useful, as is plenty of enthusiasm!

We perform three concerts a year: Christmas, Spring and Summer.

Each of the string sections is led by a professional who has lots of playing experience. We think this helps improve technique and boost confidence, and makes the orchestra really enjoyable to play in!

Fill in our enquiry forms with details of your instrument, approximate standard and playing experience:


General funding of the LMO is via membership subscription. This pays for the costs of rehearsal venue hire, music hire, professional fees, insurance and general running costs of the orchestra.

Subscription rates for the 2020-2021 season are:

  • £82 per term (£40 concessions **) or
  • £246 for the year (£120 concessions **)

** - Brass players in the orchestra and over 65s, full time students, people in receipt of income support, universal credit or income related allowances

The Orchestra is a registered charity and your subscription may be enhanced at no cost to you by signing a Gift Aid form.


Although we are not looking for woodwind players at the moment, we’d still like to hear from you, particularly if you’re available to deputise.

We’ll also keep you in mind when we have vacancies in these sections.

Use the appropriate enquiry form above to let us know your details and we will add you to our lists.
