Kingston Chamber Orchestra is the Associate Orchestra of Kingston University

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


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.
