About LMTO

What We Do

The London Musical Theatre Orchestra is the world's only professional orchestra dedicated to performing musical theatre repertoire. LMTO produces spectacular concerts of musicals in major London venues with our full orchestra and world class soloists. The orchestra is formed of musicians who love musicals - most of whom are established professionals, but a quarter of whom are always young developing professionals.

Since LMTO's public launch in June 2016, the orchestra has performed at iconic central London venues such as the London Palladium, the Lyceum Theatre and Cadogan Hall to sell-out crowds and rave five-star reviews.

LMTO is a charity, and we receive financial support from a number of philanthropic sources.
