Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra

Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra is based in Wimbledon and caters for talented musicians between the ages of 8 and 21. Our two orchestras rehearse weekly and perform three concerts each year.

Founded 1944

  • Mission statement

    Stoneleigh's objectives are to educate the public in the arts and sciences, particularly the art and science of music, and to this end we regularly hold concerts, which are open to the public.

    Furthermore we aim to advance the musical education of young persons under the age of 21 years. Over 100 young people regularly performed with our two orchestras. Through regular weekly rehearsals with our three conductors, and sectional rehearsals conducted by external specialists, the players have the opportunity to learn a wide repertoire of challenging classical music and improve their orchestral skills. We actively recruit players from the boroughs of Epsom, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth. We offer financial assistance towards the cost of membership to those who require it, and we have a clear policy that no person who is musically eligible to join one of the orchestras will be denied access to membership for financial reasons.
