HLO is dedicated to keeping the Light Orchestral Music repertoire alive.  To that end and although we have access to our own large library of music, we strive to track down and perform long lost works.  Often the printed music is difficult to locate, however we constatly search music archives across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world for ellusive and rare gems.

 

Recent finds the HLO will be performing new and rare items in the coming months including;

Chinese Street Serenade - Ludwig Siede  (often recorded with) Japanese Lantern Dance  - Yoshitomo
