Formed in 1983 by musicians living in Islington, the Orchestra gives regular concerts in and around North London. The repertoire ranges from the early classics to contemporary works.

HCO aims to provide live classical music to the highest possible standard for all who live in Islington and surrounding boroughs. The reputation of the Orchestra has enabled it to attract conductors and soloists of international repute.

All the performers normally donate their services.
