About South Lanarkshire Orchestral Society

SLOS is a charity, core-funded through membership subscriptions but also supported financially by South Lanarkshire Council.

A committee oversees all aspects of SLOS work, and we are always glad to receive offers of assistance from parents, friends and supporters! We always have people on hand throughout rehearsal evenings to answer inquiries and to run our reception desk.

Our music staff are all highly qualified practitioners in a range of instrumental disciplines; each ensemble has its own conductor, supported by specialist instrumental tutors to ensure the very best quality of learning and performing experience.
