ABOUT US

Now into our 7th Season, the Amati Orchestra aims to become one of London’s leading amateur 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 2018/19 Season. Please click here to join.

We have performed over 60 works, focusing on romantic symphonic and late classical repertoire, including Holst The Planets, Strauss Don Juan, Mahler Symphony No 5, Bernstein Symphonic Dances “West Side Story”, Rachmaninov Symphony No 2, Dvorak Cello Concerto (Soloist: Vashti Hunter), Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6 (Pathétique), Grieg Piano Concerto (soloist Mariko Brown), and Elgar Enigma Variations. For full repertoire – click to see Previous Seasons.​

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

REHEARSALS

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

Amati performs three concerts per season in Central London.

Members of the orchestra have performed as soloists, including Leader Edouard Alexandre Wood (Bruch Violin Concerto No 1, Beethoven Violin Concerto), Principal Clarinet Andrew Lewandowski (Mozart Clarinet Concerto), Principal Horn Jonathan West (Mozart Horn Concerto No 3).
