Who we are

The ESO is an independent voluntary orchestra based in West London, established nearly a century ago and still going strong. We have been under the baton of John Gibbons, well-known in both the professional and amateur worlds, since 1994.

Our next concerts are listed above and on our Concerts page; ticket information on the Tickets page. We try to break away from the ‘usual’ repertoire with plenty of new and exciting things, particularly British composers and 20th (and 21st) century music.


We’re a fun bunch and would love to hear from potential new members, particularly strings, who enjoy exciting programmes, lots of variety in their playing opportunities and a solid social scene – if this sounds like you, check out Join Us and see what you think!

You can join at any point during the year, we don’t have a specific intake period and we don’t audition for strings (we prefer an on-the-job evaluation).
