Lambeth Wind Orchestra

Lambeth Wind Orchestra is a concert band based in Herne Hill, south London, rehearsing and performing a varied programme of music both for fun and for the community. We play classical arrangements, marches, popular music and modern pieces. Our concert programmes have included music by Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger, Philip Sparke, Buxton Orr, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Haydn Wood and we have presented world premieres of pieces by Andy Bungay, Roger Cawkwell, Martin Jones, Elizabeth Winters, Cedric Peachey and Anthony Sharpe. The band has a strong relationship with new music, performing several new works and special arrangements each year - in 2012, they embark on a collaborative project with London Composers Forum for the Cultural Olympiad showcase, Cool Fusion. See www.forumcomposers.org.uk/projects/coolfusion for more. LWO is keen to encourage and promote more new music for concert band, collaborative projects with schools/community groups, recordings, small tours, recognition of little-known works for band and appreciation of British Light Music. Their conductor is John Holland. He has over 20 years of playing and conducting experience with brass and wind bands across London and the Home Counties and actively encourages positive music-making in the community. He won a British Composer Award in 2008 (Making Music Award) for his chamber orchestra piece, ‘Green Sky’. LWO rehearse on Thursdays 7.45pm-10pm at St Paul’s Church Hall, Herne Hill SE24. It is 5 minutes' walk from Herne Hill BR station and the 68 and 468 buses stop outside. There is some space for car parking and bikes can be kept in the hall where we rehearse.
