Cellos required

We are always keen to recruit new string players, and especially in the cello section. Read more on the join us page. You can find more on our rehearsal venue, times and schedule on the players page.

Kingston Philharmonia was founded in 1974 by Walter Wurzburger, who had established himself in Kingston as a composer, player, conductor and teacher. He conducted the orchestra for the next twenty-one years.

For 15 years, until April 2013, the orchestra was conducted by Levon Parikian.

Since then, we have appointed a series of guest conductors. In July, 2015, following a highly successful concert, we are fortunate in securing the services of Scott Wilson as our new conductor and Musical Director.

We are now an established part of the musical landscape in Kingston-on-Thames, giving four concerts a year, normally in St Andrew's Church, Surbiton.

We always welcome new players, particularly string players, and especially cellos. We occasionally have vacancies for wind and brass, for which there is an informal audition. Please see the join us page for more details and how to apply.
