Located on a 300-acre estate in northwest London, Harrow School is a boarding school for boys aged 13–18 founded in 1572. Over half of Harrow’s pupils learn an instrument and there are more than 60 Music Scholars at any one time. Musicians are involved in ensemble work through choirs, bands and orchestras, performing in over 80 concerts each year. Many music teachers are professors at conservatoires and play with London’s top orchestras.

The Harrow Chamber Orchestra comprises most of the music scholars at Harrow. It has an extensive repertoire, stretching from the Baroque to Modern era. The Orchestra’s current tour of Singapore and Bangkok is a prelude to future concerts this year at St John’s Smith Square, Speech Room at Harrow and a tour of Russia in 2019.
