The LCO has gained a reputation as one of London’s leading non-professional orchestras with exciting and passionate performances for charity events.

Partner Charity Led

A Partner Charity may take primacy for all non-musical matters relating to the event and receive all proceeds. The partner charity covers all agreed orchestra expenses (Approximately £1,000 for music, conductor and soloist expenses plus travelling expenses if outside of London) and is responsible for booking the venue. The LCO is able to assist in promoting the event through a mailing list and ‘Friends Scheme.’


The LCO aims to perform approximately four full orchestral concerts per year. From time to time, where there are substantial gaps between planned events in the orchestra diary and sufficient funds available, the LCO may book a date at a venue such as St. John’s, Smith Square. A partner charity will then be sought to assist primarily with the promotion of the event.


The London Charity Orchestra wants music to make a difference. Every year the organisation coordinates with a variety of charities to create exciting musical fund-raising events.

To ensure the orchestra can continue to make such a contribution we really do rely on the generosity of people like you to help us continue our important work.

You can help the orchestra make a difference today.
