'We are a society of music lovers who meet fortnightly from September to April to hear some of the world’s most celebrated musicians talk, with recorded and sometimes visual illustrations, about their lives and work. Our meetings provide a rare opportunity to learn how great musicians approach their work, and to hear about the private person behind the public image. Our guest speakers come from all fields of music – the concert hall, recital platform, opera, ballet, television and film – and include producers, broadcasters, critics and writers in addition to performers ... Our society has almost 200 members. Some of us have a considerable knowledge of music while others have very little, but what we all share is a great love of music and a desire to learn ... Why not join us and become part of one of London’s most distinguished and exciting music societies?'

'Founded in 1944, Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra (SYO) is probably the longest-established youth orchestra in Surrey and London. We aim to provide an orchestral environment which is challenging, fun, friendly and supportive, in which young musicians of all backgrounds can develop their skills and nurture a lifelong love of music. Our name comes from our original home in the leafy suburb of Stoneleigh, near Epsom in Surrey. We moved to our current home in Wimbledon in 2003. We now have over 150 members, from the ages of 9 to 18, drawn from about 60 schools all over Surrey and London. We rehearse on Sunday afternoons during term time, perform three concerts a year in some of the best concert halls in and around London, and work with leading professional musicians.'
