‘The KCO was formed in 1986, as a chamber orchestra responding to the need for the performance of classical music in Kingston upon Thames and the wider district, and a near professional standard of orchestra to attract serious instrumentalists who wish to perform on a regular basis ... Since its formation the KCO has played a wide range of orchestral music, from baroque and classical, through the Romantic era, to contemporary music from the last century. We aim for a balance between the familiar and the new, and have a long tradition of first performances of music by local composers, often of astonishing inventiveness and musicality ... The Kingston Chamber Orchestra has been the Associate Orchestra of Kingston University since 2013. Rehearsal time is given to perform compositions of members of the music faculty. Members of the University play with the orchestra.‘

‘Founded as Kingston U3A orchestra ... in 2010 to encourage amateur musicians to enjoy playing in retirement. It became a fully independent organisation in 2014 and adopted a new name, Kingston Third Age Orchestra. The new name reflects the age group of the majority of our players, but we are keen to recruit younger players who are free during the day and able to attend Wednesday morning rehearsals ... The orchestra has about 40 members, mostly in the Grade 6 - 8 range.’

‘Aims to provide enjoyable concerts for local audiences and musicians in south west London. The chosen programme tends to include Western “classical” repertoires, but frequently contains “ethnic” compositions or instruments. This approach lends itself to the Musical Director's desire to give meaning to the phrase “West meets East”. The orchestra members consist of retired professionals, music teachers and keen amateurs.’

'All Saints has a strong musical tradition going back hundreds of years. By the sixteenth century All Saints had a choir which walked in ceremonial processions and sang at special services ...  Over the past half-century the range and quality of music has continued to grow, and in 1988 an organ by the distinguished Danish builder Erik Frobenius was installed, securing All Saints as Kingston’s leading venue for concerts as well as other dramatic and artistic events. The choir continues and is known nationally for the quality of its music making and sings an extensive repertoire. As well as contributing to the worship of the church, it makes broadcasts and recordings, has excellent connections with local schools and has regularly produced choral scholars at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.'
