About The Pico Players

Symphony Orchestra
Central London
Amateur symphony orchestra based in central London. Standard Grade 8+, non-auditioning. Performs 3 concerts a year around London.

The orchestra was founded in April 2014 by keen amateur musicians Rosie Wintour and Patrick Massey. Since then the group has grown regularly to become a full sized symphony orchestra, with the aim of performing at least three concerts a year. Players are required to have reached Grade 8 level at some point, but no auditions are held. The primary aim of the orchestra is to provide a friendly atmosphere in which players can enjoy performing orchestral music at a high standard. We are particularly delighted that many of our members have picked up their instruments after months (even years) of collecting dust/rust! Current repertoire ranges from classical to late romantic works. This will remain the orchestra’s focus, though as it develops the repertoire will expand to cover more contemporary genres.
