Slide 2 - London Musical Theatre Orchestra

Slide 2

Strike up the band

A few weeks later, on Sunday 13th July 2015, musicians gathered in St Silas Church and played through the score of a musical in private, just for fun. This was the first Sitz, and the London Musical Theatre Orchestra was born.

LMTO took up the position of Orchestra-in-Residence at Bishopsgate Institute in January 2016, where the Sitzes remain to this day.

Support us

LMTO is a charity, so we rely on the support of our audiences and fans to continue producing exceptional concerts and supporting young musicians as they enter the professional world.


Each month, over 100 musicians and singers gather at Bishopsgate Institute to sing and play though the score of a musical in private. The result is extraordinary. Fancy coming along?
