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 March, 2018, following a highly successful concert, we were fortunate in securing the services of Lewis Gaston as our 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, or All Saints Church, Kingston.

We always welcome new players. 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.
