The St. George’s Chamber Orchestra (SGCO) was founded in 2004 as the professional orchestra for the South East in order to give local music lovers the opportunity to hear orchestral concerts of the highest standard on their own doorstep, and indeed for the musicians to enjoy making music together on their own doorstep! The orchestra is drawn from an extraordinarily talented, experienced and versatile pool of musicians, a large number of whom are past winners of prestigious awards and musical competitions in the UK and elsewhere. Many either are or have been members of the leading London orchestras and a significant number are principals in those orchestras. Many others are members of Britain’s best known chamber ensembles. Since its foundation the orchestra has been resident at St. George’s Church which has a long, strong and respected musical heritage, and boasts one of the finest church choirs in the UK. With its spaciousness, good acoustics and warm friendly atmosphere the church is an ideal venue for a chamber orchestra.

The Internationally award-winning XBY Concert Band was formed in 1989, when a group of Bromley Youth Concert Band Alumni wanted to recapture the quality music making they enjoyed in the BYCB. Since then, the band has performed in and around London and has toured extensively, gaining first prize in several competitions in the UK and Europe. It is formed almost entirely of past BYCB members, some of which are in the music industry but most of whom have gone on to work in other fields such as accountancy, law, consultancy, teaching, banking and software development proving the point that music can be with you for life no matter what career you end up in. Since its formation, the band has been fortunate enough to be under the skilful leadership of its conductor, Dennis Mycroft, who taught most of the players when they were still in the Bromley Youth Music Trust. With an age range of 18-50+ it is a true testament to the BYMT’s legacy; it is the members’ common interest in music and support for this organisation that brings so many different generations together at rehearsals, concerts, tours and many a raucous social occasion. In fact, the current Principal of the BYMT, Ian Rowe, is a member of the band, and XBY is delighted to see one of their own take the helm of an organisation that is so important to its players.
