Welcome to the West London Strings amateur orchestra

Looking for a string orchestra in the Hammersmith and Fulham area? Then you’ve come to the right place!  We are still rehearsing.

Formed in 2009, West London Strings is a very friendly amateur string orchestra which enjoys playing string music on Monday evenings. We are fortunate in having musician Susanna Wilson as our conductor and also benefit from being led by a professional on the first violins.  

There are no auditions and all are welcome. Music is chosen to suit the membership and we  work on a range of pieces, from pre-baroque to 21st century, in a non-pressurised and supportive environment. 

Come and see what we do by joining us for a no commitment session before you sign up. Contact details below or on the Join Us page.

Our Conductor – Susanna Wilson

We are very fortunate to have Susanna Wilson as our conductor. Following her studies with Florence Hooton at The Royal Academy of Music, and post-graduate study with Raphael Wallfisch, Susanna has had an extensive career as soloist, chamber musician and freelance orchestral musician, performing at venues as diverse as The Barbican, The Bath Assembly Rooms, Norwegian Cruise Liners and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. 

Susanna is currently also a tutor for The East London Late Starters’ Orchestra and the Mary Ward Centre as well as enjoying regular invitations to tutor at Morley College and the City Lit.


Come and join us

There are no auditions and we always welcome new members. We would be particularly keen to hear from viola players and would love a double bass! 

If you would like to come along for a free trial session to see if you’d like to join us, just get in touch and we will get back to you.
