Lewisham Junior Orchestra makes its long awaited return, and this time we are partnering up with the legendary London Symphony Orchestra (LSO), so come and join Lewisham Music for two days of exciting orchestral music making!


Lewisham Junior Orchestra provides a great opportunity for young musicians to develop their instrumental skills and learn new arrangements under the expert leadership of professional cellist, Thibault Blanchard-Dubois, experienced Lewisham Music musicians, and this year we will be joined by some amazing musicians from London Symphony Orchestra.


Participants will take part in sectional rehearsals throughout the two days, gaining experience and confidence within small groups, before coming together to perform as part of a large orchestra with all the other young musicians.


Who is Lewisham Junior Orchestra suitable for…

Young musicians in Years 4 to 8 (inclusive) who play strings, woodwind, brass and percussion (tuned and untuned percussion) at Grade 1 standard and above (no formal grades required). Unfortunately we are unable to accept piano and guitar applications.
