About Us

We meet on Friday mornings from 10.30am to 12.30pm at the Chatsworth Baptist Church in West Norwood (see Contact Section for details). We usually have three terms a year.

The orchestra has a lively informal atmosphere and the rehearsals are enjoyed by everyone. There are no auditions and if you wish, you can come and join in or just listen and decide if the SLSO might be for you!

SLSO was formed in the 1960s by Leonard Davis, a prominent local orchestral conductor.

Our varied programmes have included Handel, Telemann, Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart; 20th century composers include Elgar, Vaughan-Williams, Sibelius, Finzi, Peter Warlock and Butterworth.
