ABOUT US

Now into our 8th Season, the Amati Orchestra is one of London’s advanced amateur symphony orchestras.

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. Our members include advanced amateur and professional musicians, and we are actively welcoming applications for our 2019/20 Season. Please click here to join.

We have performed over 60 works, focusing on romantic symphonic and late classical repertoire. These include Mahler Symphony No 5, Holst The Planets, Rachmaninov Symphony No 2, and Dvorak Cello Concerto (Soloist: Vashti Hunter). For full repertoire – click to see Previous Seasons.​

Earlier this year, the orchestra was part of a Making Music exhibition at the Barbican Library, featured in the Spring 2017 edition of the Making Music magazine High Notes (page 21), and held an Open Rehearsal as part of BBC Music: Get Playing. The orchestra was also the featured interview in the September 2016 Classical Events Newsletter, and on TripTide.

Rehearsals are on Tuesdays 7:30-9:45pm at St Botolph’s-without-Aldersgate in the City of London. St Botolph’s has excellent transport links to St Paul’s Underground Station (3 min walk), Barbican (6 min walk), and City Thameslink (8 min walk).
