For a long time, Orchestra London has been a major attraction in this city, and would definitely have topped most people's recommendations. However, what I want to warn people about now is that the orchestra is in severe financial difficulties. It has cancelled performances with...More

The orchestra was fun, the music good and the Music Director made the whole thing most enjoyable. The concert we attended seemed to have a few insturments short due to the Christmas season with several musicians elsewhere - but just great
