ABOUT US

The London Incidental Orchestra is an energetic, innovative ensemble comprised of talented musicians from all walks of life.

 

It was established primarily to offer performance opportunities to accomplished individuals who have trained as musicians but might have gone on to progress in other fields.

The LIO is accessible, enjoyable and fun for everyone involved.

 

Although it delivers high quality performances to develop its players, it's not an ensemble for big egos, but for friends that are passionate about music and are keen to show others how amazing it can be.
