In 2022, we continued with the unique Camerata Tchaikovsky project launched at the end of the previous year to give young musicians opportunities to perform with the first-class professional orchestra. The concerts took place at St Mark's Hamilton Terrace in February, April and June and included Haydn's, Mozart's and Beethoven's concertos as well as various orchestral arrangements of piano, violin and flute works. These concerts provided an invaluable experience for the young musicians, many of whom played with the orchestra for the first time. The next concert is Saturday 24th September and will include works by Vivaldi, Haydn, Paganini, Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky, and Elgar.

Another orchestral project in collaboration with London Youth Orchestra was launched in April 2022 to enable young instrumentalists from all over London to meet on a weekly basis and perform in public.

In 2021-2022 we continued our series of concerts at St Mark’s Hamilon Terrace and St Mary’s Primorse Hill and our pupils were also invited to perform at the Pushkin House, Westbourne House (Open Music Foundation Charity) and Ognisko Polskie – The Polish Hearth.
Since February 2022, we have held many Fundraising Concerts for Peace in Ukraine. The funds raised were passed on Ukrainian refugees and Ukrainian organisations.
