The orchestra at rehearsal in Kingston Parish Church

About Us

Kingston Chamber Orchestra performs three times a year in the beautiful All Saints Parish Church in the centre of Kingston, Surrey. 

We have a tradition of innovative concert programming that encompasses many areas of the repertoire, such as:

  • classical overtures, concertos and symphonies;
  • works for smaller orchestra from the 19th and 20th centuries;
  • neglected works by well known composers;
  • new works specially commissioned by the orchestra

History

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.
