LSCO December Course - Sign Up Now!

SIGN UP NOW FOR THE LSCO DECEMBER COURSE 2017!

The London Schools Chamber Orchestra (LSCO) is the string training orchestra for the London Schools Symphony Orchestra (Artistic Director Peter Ash). It was set up in December 2012 with the purpose of challenging and developing young talented string players who will then progress to the LSSO. Until 2016, it was generously funded by the J Paul Getty Jnr Charitable Trust
The course directors, Hilary Sturt and John Kirby are experienced and innovative in the field of string teaching and education. A particular feature of LSCO courses is that they combine young string players with current LSSO wind and brass players to prepare and perform standard chamber orchestra repertoire, giving them leadership/mentoring roles and the opportunity to perform concertos.  As well as a strong ethos of peer involvement, composer members of the LSCO regularly have their works performed. Past members of the LSCO include winners of the BBC Young Composers Competition.
