There is a wide range of experience and ages amongst our players, but we are united by our love of performing music together. At South London Symphonic Winds we pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming atmosphere – all are welcome to come along and try us out.

We do not audition but we recommend that players have a minimum standard of grade five. SLSW has proved particularly popular amongst musicians getting back into an instrument after a couple of years break.

There is no obligation to play solos, but opportunities are there if you wish and players are encouraged to develop their playing in a totally non-threatening ambiance.
