London Symphonia

Mission and Vision

London Symphonia is a professional symphony orchestra committed to performing vibrant and bold musical experiences for London and the region. With a core of 30 players, our versatile group meets the community's needs for quality programming by presenting well-known symphonies, Canadian premieres, and collaborations with some of Canada's finest singer-songwriters. Our vision includes a commitment to artistic excellence, music education, and strong community partnerships.


Incorporated in 2015, London Symphonia proudly carries on an orchestral tradition that began in 1937 as the only professional ensemble currently offering a full season of orchestral music in the London region. An incorporated and registered charitable organization, we offer exceptional classical and contemporary musical performances, meeting the community's need for quality programming by presenting well-known symphonies, Canadian premières, and collaborations with some of Canada's finest singer-songwriters. We also perform a number of outreach and music education engagements each season for students and seniors in our community .

We deliver a rich, artistic experience by seeking out the most accomplished performers and conductors representing a blend of locally, nationally and internationally recognized talent. Guest conductors and performers of international acclaim consist of many talented established and emerging artists including Sarah Slean, Bramwell Tovey, Janina Fialkowska, James Ehnes, and the Amabile Singers of London, Canada. Composer-In-Residence Scott Good has brought tremendous energy and a fresh perspective on Canadian compositions that are woven into the programming.

We endeavor to grow and diversify our audiences to reflect the broader London community, through programming initiatives that engage different demographic groups. Our music education outreach undertakings are essential for future audience development and include speaking engagements, performances in schools and residences for seniors. We are continually looking to develop strong partnerships with other arts and non-arts organizations in the city of London and the surrounding region.

Through the unwavering commitment of the London Symphonia musicians, the goodwill from collaborators and advisors across the country, financial stability from all three levels of government, and support from a combination of ticket sales, private donations, and corporate sponsorship, London Symphonia looks forward to continued growth.
