St Bartholomews Orchestra, amateur orchestra in South London St Bartholomews Orchestra, amateur orchestra in South London

Welcome to St Bart's...

... your friendly local orchestra

We are a friendly amateur orchestra and registered charity based in Streatham, South London. We are conducted by prize-winning conductors from the Royal Academy of Music, where many of our soloists come from too.

We enjoy playing from a wide repertoire, and perform 3 or 4 concerts a year, mainly in local concert venues, although past locations include Southwark and St George's Cathedrals, Arundel Castle, Croydon Clocktower and Fairfield Hall. We also take part in concerts with St Bartholomew's Polyphony Choir. We raise money for charity through our concerts, and have raised tens of thousands of pounds during the 40 years we've been established. During the last year we have played for charities feeding infants in Sudan, helping restore St John's Church Upper Norwood (one of our venues), and opening up opportunities and training for young musicians in Madagascar.
