"They produce a sound almost too beautiful to believe...Gorgeous!"

The London Cello Orchestra is pleased to announce its Summer Season, 2017.

A concert in London on 15 July precedes a return visit to South Korea, following the Orchestra’s successful tour in 2013. We will perform at the Lotte Concert Hall on 18 July and the Concert Hall of the Seoul Arts Center on 19 July.

The London Cello Orchestra is a concert ensemble arising from the renowned
London Sound series of recordings by Cala Records. Its 20 Members are drawn from London's finest solo, chamber and orchestral cellists, together with highly talented emerging players associated with the Arts Global foundation.

Conducted by Geoffrey Simon, the London Cello Orchestra has performed for
H.M. The Queen and H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh in London. It has appeared in Geneva,
New York, Philadelphia and throughout South Korea.

"The Orchestra made an unforgettable impression.
I was drawn deeply into the sound of the ensemble."

"In a word: stunning. The playing of London's top cellists is marvellous."
Gramophone
