RCMJD Chamber and Symphony Orchestras

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Young musicians from the Royal College of Music shine in an orchestral performance conducted by Christopher Hirons and Jacques Cohen.

The junior department of the Royal College of Music trains young musicians aged eight to 18.

Some 350 students attend each Saturday, travelling from as far afield as Tyneside, Manchester, York, Germany, Ireland and Spain.

The students have recently featured at the BBC Proms and regularly appear at prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Sadlers Wells and Cadogan Hall.

They have performed at the House of Lords and at Sandringham for the Royal College of Music President, HRH The Prince of Wales.

No fewer than five orchestras rehearse weekly at the Royal College of Music.

Performing here, the chamber and symphony orchestras are the college’s flagship ensembles.
