North London Symphony Orchestra
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 or Muswell Hill, 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.
