We are a hand-picked pool of London’s best freelance players. The Lydian String includes professional musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia, the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, English National Ballet, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestras of the BBC.
Beyond that, a significant factor sets us apart from our competitors.
All our work is underpinned by a unique charitable ethos. The idea came about following the cancer related deaths of family members, and coming to terms with this, we wanted to use our musical abilities to fund-raise for an appropriate charity. Since 2005, that charity has been Macmillan.
We have raised in excess of £180,000 for various UK based cancer charities, the majority of it (£140,000) for Macmillan Cancer Support.
