The Orchestra is growing again after a few years of consolidation and we are aiming to spread our music and news ever wider. We see that having a strong base of support, particularly from ex-players and friends, is vital to underpin our vision and aspirations for the future.

The Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra Society is a registered charity and is financed entirely by the members’ subscriptions, proceeds of concerts, sponsorship and fund raising. You can help support the orchestra by becoming a Sponsor or a Friend.
