South London Community Music is an umbrella charity. Its origins go back over twenty years.
We aim to encourage and foster music-making, together with and for the community, in a welcoming, supportive and inclusive atmosphere. Our rehearsal space and storage are based in South London. We perform in London, the UK and also abroad from time to time.
Our centre moved from Camberwell to Stockwell in September. We are now based in Mostyn Road Methodist Church London SW9 6PH. We are immensely grateful for the warm welcome we have received from the Minister and the Church.
SLCM has three affiliated ensembles:
All are formed from and run voluntarily by enthusiastic, talented musicians and singers, of all backgrounds and all adult ages.
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.
Supporting the 2017 London Marathon
An annual event for our two bands, SLJO will be playing on the pavement near the Rotherhithe Roundabout, and South London Symphonic Winds in Jamaica Road, about half a mile further along. The bands play for about three hours - an hour longer than usual - we think the runners have a much easier time of it!
