About Street Orchestra Live

Street Orchestra Live (SOL) is an orchestra that plays up to 6 free concerts per day in public and private spaces, seeking out audiences who would not usually have access to symphonic music. 

SOL has three overriding aims: 

1. Provide orchestral music for everyone, anywhere

2. Offer a unique musical experience to its players

3. Expand the repertoire of new music for the ensemble


The orchestra was founded in 2016 as Street Orchestra of London, a project of the new music charity nonclassical. In 2018 the orchestra separated from nonclassical to become Street Orchestra Live, which is a charity limited by guarantee. The new name was chosen to better reflect that players come from across the country, and touring activity is now focused outside the metropolitan area.

SOL has committed to delivering two tours per year, and has toured Newcastle, Liverpool, Leicester, Colchester, Coventry, as well as initial tours in and around the Greater London area. Alongside these tours are smaller weekends project  (e.g. Sound Unbound, Oxford Festival of the Arts).
