Londons' Orion Orchestra

Londons' Orion Orchestra was founded to provide young musicians the opportunities and mentorship needed to bridge the gap between music college and their professional careers, while inspiring the next generation through its accessible concerts.

With players selected from the most talented music college students and recent graduates, the orchestra gives young players experiences working at London's leading concert venues, giving them the chance to work under the highest professional standards.

Orion also sets aside 20% of all concert tickets to give away free to schools and other charitable causes, meaning that people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to come to classical concerts get the chance.

Upcoming Events:

Nicky Spence

Opera Singer, Nicky Spence is one of Scotland’s proudest sons and his unique skills as a singing actor and the rare honesty of his musicianship are steadfastly earning him a place at the top of the classical music profession.

Nicky was schooled locally in Dumfries and Galloway before receiving a scholarship to the Guildhall School as their youngest singer at 17 years old. During his training, he won a record contract with Decca Records before taking a place at the National Opera Studio and latterly a position at the English National Opera as one of their inaugural Harewood Artists.

Safely inhabiting the repertoire of Strauss, Janáček and Wagner, Nicky is fulfilling his exciting potential as a Heldentenor having recently made his role debut as Parsifal with the Hallé orchestra under Sir Mark Elder. Described in The Times this year as ‘a tenor who combines heroic tone and a poetic sensibility that takes the breath away’, Nicky has recorded prolifically and is a regular featured recitalist at the Wigmore Hall, London though he can mostly be found on the International stages of Opera de Paris, Covent Garden and the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

Claire Presland

Described by the Times as “mesmerising with an intensity that almost sears the flesh” Clare Presland is a former winner of the Chilcott Award and has firmly established herself on the international operatic and concert platforms.

UK Queen  - Queen Tribute Band

UK Queen with Alexander Koronka was formed out of a love of re-producing Queen’s top hits with top musicians.

Audiences can range from a select few, to the tens of thousands.

UK Queen seek to create a musical ‘experience’ and may be accompanied by classical quartets or top sopranos to deliver songs such as’ Barcelona’. Alexander’s desire is not just to faithfully reproduce Queen’s greatest hits, but to expand an audience’s musical journey by introducing more and more people to the truly magnificent and broad song book of Queen, accompanied by only the very best musicians. He will ‘Rock You’ he will “Deliver’.
