We partner with churches and community centres to provide hugely entertaining events as a gift to the locality. Many of our venues have invited us for over 20 years.
Formed in 1985 by Gerard Le Feuvre, the King's Chamber Orchestra is an outstanding professional orchestra Originally performing as a symphony orchestra, regular concerts as a chamber orchestra began in the 90s to support the Christian charitable work of Youth With A Mission at the suggestion of a cousin of Gerard's. Consequently the orchestra's first series in the smaller format were given at YWAM's beautiful estate in Harpenden Herts.
Today the number of concerts has expanded from its original handful to 45 a year, mostly as a chamber orchestra but sometimes as a symphony orchestra or chamber ensemble. KCO's members are distinguished musicians, committed Christians, and friends whom Gerard has gathered together while freelancing with some of the finest orchestras in the country, and who share an interest in breaking down traditional walls for the sake of reaching a new generation.
The orchestra's enthusiasm and humour, and a unique ability to touch the public with improvisations and worship, has attracted large and often unprecedented audiences wherever it has regularly performed. During the last twenty years KCO has broadcast, recorded, and performed in a variety of venues ranging from the Royal Albert Hall to a number of more local venues in the "shires".
Because of the unique way our concert programmes are presented - with humour depth and originality - we distinguish between those programmes of our own (KINGS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA) and those programmes where we are effectively hired to perform someone else's programme. This is common in support of a choir for a special occasion or similar, and under those circumstances we perform under the name KINGS SINFONIETTA.
