ABOUT US

The Amati Orchestra is one of London’s advanced amateur symphony orchestras, and in July 2023 marked its 10th Anniversary season with a sold-out Cadogan Hall performance of Mahler Symphony No 2 “Resurrection”.

A City of London orchestra formed in 2011, in July 2017 we performed our debut at St John’s Smith Square with Mahler Symphony No 1 (“Titan”), returning a season later with Stravinsky The Rite of Spring, and returned again in March 2024 for a sold-out performance of Richard Strauss Also sprach Zarathustra. Our members include advanced amateur and professional musicians, and we are actively welcoming applications for our 2023/24 Season. Please click here to join.

We have performed over 70 works, focusing on large-scale romantic symphonic repertoire. These include Shostakovich Symphony No 10, Stravinsky Firebird Suite, Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique, Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances, Sibelius Symphony No 5, Richard Strauss Alpine Symphony, and Holst The Planets. For full repertoire – click to see Previous Seasons.

Recent soloists include Julieth Lozano Rolong (winner of the Dame Kiri Te Kanawa Audience Prize at the 2023 Cardiff Singer of the World Competition), and Thomas Kelly (Finalist in the 2021 Leeds International Piano Competition).
