The Angel Orchestra was founded in 1990 and is now a well-established and thriving orchestra. Peter Fender is our inspirational music director and conductor and has conducted the orchestra since 2008. The orchestra has participated in many exciting projects including exchange trips with an Italian orchestra, improvisation at the ICA and performing live the Laura Rossi score for the Battle of the Somme film.
Having previously played some music by women composers, and following the positive feedback from our Votes for Women centenary concert in 2018, the orchestra adopted a policy of playing at least one piece by a woman composer in every concert from our 2019/20 season through to our 2021/22 season. Angel Orchestra remains committed to promoting women composers wherever we can.
The Angel Orchestra is registered with the Charity Commission, and holds regular fundraisers where part of the proceeds also go to support Apollo Music Projects, a charity which aims to bring live classical music to children who might not otherwise experience it.
We welcome newcomers to our rehearsals and our social events.
