The orchestra was founded in 2002 for a performance in Canterbury Cathedral as part of the Canterbury Festival, conducted by international conductor and oboist, Nicholas Daniel.

In 2007, the orchestra was brought together once again under conductor Anthony Halstead.

Guest conductors have included Stephan Barlow and Gordon Hunt. Each year the Orchestra works with a Jazz talent for their ‘Jazz night’ working with talents such as Ian Shaw, Iain Bellamy, David Rees-Williams and this year Dulcie May and Paul Booth
