Welcome to Kingston Third Age Orchestra

south west London’s orchestra for amateur musicians who are free to rehearse during the day.


Our next concert will be on the morning of Wednesday 29 June at Kingston United Reformed Church.

Schubert: Overture to Rosamunde
Kit McCarthy: All other things will change
Beethoven: Symphony no 1

 Beethoven’s 1st Symphony was the main item of the orchestra’s first concert.



The orchestra welcomes new members of any age who are available to rehearse on Wednesday mornings in Kingston.   We are actively recruiting violin players.
