Play-throughs: The London Musical Theatre Orchestra 

Do you love musicals? Do you dream of playing or singing in a 70-piece orchestra or choir? 

Each month, over 100 singers and musicians gather at Bishopsgate to sing and play through the score of a musical. The entire process happens over a single day, from separate rehearsals through to the final performance in the Great Hall. It's all done in private, so there's no audience and no pressure, it's just a chance for talented people to get together and share in the joy of some brilliant music. In other words, we just do it for fun. Yes, FUN.

We welcome professionals, students and amateurs to take part: all we ask for is a passion for musical theatre. Whether you're already playing in the pit at Les Mis, have just started training or simply enjoy belting out show tunes in the shower, Play-throughs are brilliant opportunity to improve your sight-reading skills and play wonderful scores, surrounded by brilliant musicians and singers. Play-throughs take place on the first Sunday of each month and must be applied for individually via LMTO.

LMTO is the world’s only professional orchestra dedicated to solely performing works of musical theatre. Born from a desire to perform musical scores with a full, symphonic orchestra, we celebrate this remarkable genre of music with world-class musicians and singers. We are passionate about introducing audiences to the joys of a full orchestra playing a musical and are committed to supporting young musicians as they enter the professional world. We are proud to be Orchestra-in-residence at Bishopsgate Institute.
