Ealing Symphony on BBC Radio 3
We are delighted to have been chosen as one of ten groups to be featured on BBC Radio 3, as part of the “Get Playing” scheme, in collaboration with Making Music. Our recording of George Lloyd’s Sixth Symphony was the piece submitted. The third movement was broadcast on the Breakfast show on BBC Radio 3 on 2 August. You can listen to the whole show on iPlayer here (for the rest of August), and the recording itself can be found on the BBC website here (hopefully indefinitely!).
Remember that our CDs are not publicly available, they are only available to our Members and our Friends. If you liked the recording and would like to hear more, become a Friend!

Who we are
The ESO is an independent voluntary orchestra based in West London usually giving around five main concerts a year. We try to do something in most concerts which is a bit out of the ordinary, without forgetting that players and audiences come to enjoy themselves, so there are plenty of popular classics as well as some fine music you may not know already. Our concert programmes pages should give you an idea of what we’re about. To find out more about the orchestra, see About us. Our conductor is John Gibbons, now well-known in both the professional and amateur worlds.
We are always happy to hear from good amateur string players. Find out more on our Join us page.
