South London Community Music is an umbrella charity based in Camberwell, south London, to encourage and foster music-making, together and for the community, in a welcoming, supportive and inclusive atmosphere.

Currently we have three affiliated ensembles:

South London Symphonic Winds 

South London Jazz Orchestra

London Sings!

All are formed from and run by enthusiastic, talented musicians and singers, of all backgrounds and adult ages.

Our ethos

We have an 'open door' policy, with no auditions or other bar to entry. As well as making music, we understand the importance of socialising; SLCM organises joint social events for all groups, and our ensembles organise their own too. They also arrange tours, sometimes abroad, from time to time.

If this sounds like fun, why not come along and join in? This site tells you briefly about each ensemble, but please follow the links to their dedicated websites for full details and information on how to join.

Our anniversary and continuity

2016 marks our 21st anniversary. Our Founder, Bob Bridges, is still the Music Director, and conducts all three Ensembles.

 New premises and new Trustee-Treasurer

We are currently looking for a new rehearsal space with adjacent storage.

We are also recruiting a Trustee-Treasurer.
