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.

We are based in Mostyn Road Methodist Church London SW9 6PH. We are immensely grateful for the invaluable support we receive from the Minister and the Church.

Our overall membership is about 160. However we have no office and the Board of Trustees are all volunteers.

SLCM has three affiliated ensembles:

South London Symphonic Winds 

South London Jazz Orchestra

London Sings

All are formed from and run voluntarily by enthusiastic, talented musicians and singers, of all backgrounds and all 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 combining all three groups, and our ensembles organise their own get-togethers 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.

SLCM Ensembles at Christmas . . .

Christmas music epitomises this time of year, and all our Ensembles always have special performances to mark the season. Please visit their websites and Facebook pages for more details.

We also fundraise for a different charity each Christmas, by performing in a London Underground Station: this year we will be at

Paddington Station concourse on Monday December 9th from 5-7pm

with both singers and instruments (from piccolos to tubas) from all our groups. We hope to see you there!
