"We need all of our players to make a real commitment to rehearsals and concerts, so please have a look at the Commitment and Attendance section on the members’ page to see what our expectations are.

Rehearsals are in Hammersmith at Novotel London West (entrance on Chalk Hill Road, off Shortlands, W6 8DR). on Monday evenings for nine weeks before each concert (except for bank holidays when we rehearse on Tuesdays).

The rehearsal schedule normally includes sectional rehearsals with coaching from well-established tutors.

Fulham Symphony Orchestra's next concert, at St John’s Smith Square on Saturday 18 November, features music by Strauss, Bartok, Martinu and Suk. Concerts at Hammersmith Town Hall will follow in spring and summer 2018.
