The London Orchestra Project is a new venture where principal players from London’s professional orchestras sit side-by-side outstanding students and recent graduates from London’s music colleges.

In this way, students on the cusp of a professional orchestral career directly benefit from the experience and knowledge of some of the UK’s finest orchestral musicians, who in turn have a direct influence on the development of the next generation of professional players.

The London Orchestra Project gave its first concert last season in a programme featuring Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht and Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto with international soloist Michael Collins. Players from the BBC Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Ballet Sinfonia, London Sinfonietta and English Chamber Orchestra worked alongside students from the Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
