'Established in 1989 at The Royal Academy of Music, Jazz Academy now resides at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Cobham ... "The great advantage of vacation courses - apart from the non-stop fun - is no exams. You learn as much or as little as you need, no questions asked. Age? Eight to eighty is about it, but nothing surprises us. It's about love of the music and pooling our experience. Tutors learn more all the time and love to pass on to others what makes them tick." [Michael Garrick] Held Spring, Summer, Winter Vacations.

’The Society was formed in 1927 with the objective of promoting choral music in the locality and of taking part in the annual Leith Hill Musical Festival ... Participation in the Leith Hill Musical Festival has always been at the heart of the Society's activities. We also give regular concerts in the summer and in the autumn, plus our very popular carol concerts in the village at Christmas ... Most of our concerts are performed locally in Bookham, Leatherhead or Dorking and we occasionally perform in other Surrey venues.’

‘We are a mix of loyal members who’ve been with the society for years and new members, many of whom enjoy the society so much that they become LOS stalwarts too! We also have a number of teens and young people who started in LOS as children in shows ... We put on one large scale production a year at the Epsom Playhouse, and usually one “revue” type show such as an Old Time Music Hall, Songs from the Shows or concert, in a local village hall.’

'We cater mostly for adult players but welcome younger ones, including those with little or no orchestral experience. The music we play is from the standard classical repertoire ... There are no specific entry standards or auditions, however you will probably need to have played for a couple of years, be playing reasonably in tune and be able to practise at home. At the end of each term we play through the rehearsed programme in front of families and guests. This is followed by a supper to round off the evening. We make no charge for attending the concert.'
