The Multi-Story Orchestra is having a (temporary) change of home, on 24 June 2017 moves from its regular Peckham car park to Blackfriars NCP multi-storey car park, Foundation Street, Ipswich for a concert as part of the Aldeburgh Festival. Christopher Stark conducts a programme which includes arias by Handel and Kate Whitley's I am, I say with soloists Raphaela Papadakis and Andrew Rupp. The orchestra will also be joined by children from Hillside Primary School and Sidegate Primary School in the Kate Whitley. The afternoon concert will be followed by one of the orchestra's Living Programme Notes featuring Mozart's Symphony No 41 (‘Jupiter’), with Christopher Stark conducting.

The orchestra returns to its regular home in Peckham in July, when performances include the living programme note on Mozart's Jupiter symphony, In Colour – a new work written by pupils from Kender, John Donne, Hollydale & Lyndhurst Primary Schools, Haydn's Symphony No 82 ‘The Bear’ and Bartok dances; at one of the performances these latter will be performed with players from St Thomas the Apostle College & Harris Academy Peckham alongside The Multi-Story Orchestra.

There is also a chamber music series in Peckham, with a programme curated by flautist Hannah Grayson which includes George Crumb's Vox Balaenae and the Trio for flute, piano and cello by the 19th century French composer Louise Farrenc, cellist Nathaniel Boyd in solo Bach and Kodaly, a programme of Rameau, Piazzola and Bach curated by cellist Abel Sealocoe, Kate Whitley & Richard Uttley in Stravinsky's piano duet version of The Rite of Spring and a programme curated by percussionist Jude Carlton which includes a new commission from Ruta Vitkauskaite.
