Sign up before Thursday the 24th of September!


Entry to the orchestra is by audition only, and applicants should be of Grade 8 standard or above. KCLSO is open to all students studying at King’s College London or students studying at other London-based universities/ conservatoires. We rehearse on Thursday evenings during term time from 6:30-9pm at the KCL Strand Campus. We perform in three concerts plus an annual international summer tour. Members have the opportunity to enter the concerto competition and/or the assistant conductor competition. To maintain the basic running of the orchestra, there is a small subscription fee of £40.

The audition will be no longer than 15 minutes and will consist of a performance  of a prepared piece (5 minutes maximum) and an orchestral excerpt. Don't worry about an accompanist for your audition. 

Auditions this year will take place ONLINE due to COVID-19 regulations. Please submit a video of yourself performing the required material to by Thursday the 24th of September at 8pm. The video must be recorded in one single take (no editing) and we must see you in the video.

We warmly invite you to join our thriving and diverse community. Aside from the weekly rehearsals, orchestra members also participate in different social activities organised by the orchestra which include post-rehearsals drinks at the student union bar and concert trips. 

If you have any queries, feel free to email: We hope to see you soon!
