• I wish some of our bigger national orchestras were as innovative… Edward Farmer, was admirably able to coax refined, elegant, playing from all the wonderful young talent in front of him… The ‘engine’ of the London Arts Orchestra – the strings, winds and brass – was the equal of many fully-professional orchestras.

  • The London Arts Orchestra deliver the magic of the show faultlessly… An intoxicating combination of arts, visuals, music and storytelling.

  • London Arts Orchestra did something rather wonderful recently. They opened up the dress rehearsal of a Mahler concert to the public. For free. Added to which they let us, the audience, sit in the orchestra among the musicians. I sat in the strings section. It was wonderful. To sit immersed in the music rather than receiving at a distance it was extraordinary… the music surrounded you, it engulfed you, it became a part of you.

  • An orchestra of fine musicians… Edward Farmer conducted with a discriminating ear for orchestral sonority and paced both the Liszt and the Grieg skilfully

  • The concert has made me think that when I grow up I would like to be part of an orchestra.

  • We brought our 8-year old daughter to Pimlico Academy tonight to hear LAO rehearse Mahler’s 5th. A wonderful experience for her… special thanks to the tuba player, contrabassoonist and flautist who made us welcome.
