Film Night with Live Orchestra

In recent years there has been a huge demand for orchestras to perform film soundtracks live during the film screening. Just like seeing your favourite movie but with the impact of hearing the soundtrack live. Let us take you on a fully immersive journey into the wonderful world of film music.

Concerts

Last Night Of the Proms is the biggest classical music event of the year – we can provide international headline soloists to create your very own last night of the proms. This can be hugely effective in the summer months with open air performances.

Events/Award Ceremonies

Award stings are much better performed live! We can arrange any choice of music to give your recipients and guests an experience to remember. In addition the orchestra will entertain with popular medleys and favourite classical orchestral works to compliment the theme of your event.

Touring

Hire our musicians to support your artist on their tour. We facilitate music arrangements, travel, visas and general touring logistics.
