SLYO is not one orchestra but a family of orchestras each offering vision, ambition and excellence. At the heart of our organisation are professional conductors, outstanding tuition from the best musicians in the profession and fine repertoire. Our collaborating orchestras work with beginners to advanced students aged 7-19. SLYO is currently open for applications from new cello pupils G4-G8+ (SLYO 4, G2-4 is already fully booked!).

When: 21-24 August

Where: JAGS in Dulwich, SE22

Conductors: SLYO 1 – Leigh O’Hara. SLYO 2 – Jonathan Butcher. SLYO 3 – Richard Sizer. SLYO 4 – Kit Massey

We are particularly excited to announce that SLYO 1 (our G8+ pupils) will be performing Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony in the brand new state of the art Vaughan Williams Auditorium in our newly opened Community Music Centre at JAGS. In light of this, we’d love to welcome some new players this summer!

More information (including application forms) can be found on our website:, but please do not hesitate to get in touch if you or your pupils have any questions. We’d love to welcome you.
