Kingston Philharmonia was founded in 1973 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.
We are currently in the process of selecting a new conductor and Musical Director.
We have chosen 5 conductors from a an excellent field, each of whom will conduct a concert
until the end of the 2013-14 season. The orchestra will then choose one of these to lead us into the future.
We are now an established part of the musical landscape in Kingston-on-Thames, giving four concerts a year,
mainly in Kingston Parish Church.
We always welcome new players — especially violins, violas, double bass and brass.
