The North London Symphony Orchestra (NLSO) is a friendly but hard-working amateur orchestra which performs a wide range of music to a high standard under a professional conductor and leader.

We give three public concerts a year, usually in Palmers Green, North London, and rehearse during term time on Monday evenings in the Hornsey/Crouch End area (N8). Recent concerts have included works by Berlioz, Brahms, Dvořák, Elgar, Korngold, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich, Sibelius, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky.

The NLSO nevertheless retains its character as a community orchestra -– a place where good amateur players can meet in a sociable atmosphere while working on demanding repertoire under professional direction.  It enjoys the support of a group of loyal Patrons (for details click here).

We like to hear from good amateur players who might be interested in joining the orchestra, which maintains deputy and waiting lists.

The NLSO is a registered charity, no. 283455
