London Pro Arte Orchestra

The LPAO is now in its 10th season, originally having been established in 1985 as the Orchestra of St. James

The Orchestra has consistently made a commitment to premiering contemporary works, and has given a number of notable Premieres, both at home and abroad, most recently, the World Premiere of Robert Walker's Mele Livida, as well as UK Premieres by Naji Hakim (Organ Concerto), Aulis Sallinen (Iron Age Suite), and Kokkonen (Requiem). London Premieres have also been given of works by Burgon, Hellawell, Howells, Langlais and Paterson. The LPAO made the Premieres recording of Richard Maunder's edition of the Mozart Requiem, in its entirety on modern instruments, and has also recorded a CD of works by Jean Langlais for Koch Schwann.

Last Season, the Orchestra established itself as the Orchestra in residence at Quenn Mary & Westfield College, University of London, where its home is the People's Palace Concert Hall. It appears regularly at the South Bank Centre, St.John's, Smith Square, the Barbican Cantre, the Colston Hall, Bristol, and the Fairfield Hall, Croydon, as well as giving concerts abroad.

The LPAO has three associate ensembles; the London Pro Arte Baroque Orchestra, the London Pro Arte Brass Ensemble, and the London Pro Arte Percussion Ensemble, directed by Tristan Fry.
