The Havering Concert Orchestra is a community orchestra serving the London Borough of Havering and surrounding areas. We exist to provide opportunities for local instrumentalists to practise and develop their musical skills, and to provide entertainment for members of the public.

We have adult members of all ages, and endeavour to make our rehearsals and concerts approachable and friendly occasions. The orchestra works with local soloists wherever possible, and has a particular commitment to offering local young musicians solo performance opportunities. We have worked with several past winners of the Havering Young Musician of the Year award.

The Havering Concert Orchestra is a member of, and is supported by, the Havering Arts Council. We are also affiliated to Making Music.


Havering Heores Watch the video, listen to the music. ‘Heroes’ performed by Havering Music School Community Orchestra – which included some of us. Celebrating Havering Heroes As we commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day today, we're also celebrating the values and actions of the local community in the fight against coronavirus.Thank you to everyone …

Martyn Bowden – much respected.

Havering Concert Orchestra were very sad to hear about the death of Martyn Bowden . Martyn supported us over many years playing trombone. In our 2019 Autumn Concert we dedicated Arvo Pärt’s – ‘Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten’ to him. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
