John Churchill, then Master of Music at the London church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, and Neville Marriner (later Sir Neville) founded the orchestra as "The Academy of St.-Martin-in-the-Fields", a small, conductorless string group. The original group numbered 11, all male. The orchestra gave its first concert on November 13, 1959, in the church it was named after. In 1988, the orchestra dropped the hyphens from its full name.

Marriner held the title of Life President until his death in 2016. The orchestra's first recording was for the L'Oiseau-Lyre label at Conway Hall on March 25, 1961. It has since accumulated an extensive discography, and is one of the most recorded chamber orchestras in the world, with over 500 sessions. Other labels the orchestra has recorded for include Argo, Capriccio, Chandos, Decca, EMI, Hänssler, Hyperion, PENTATONE and Philips. The orchestra has also recorded under the names "Argo Chamber Orchestra", "London String Players", and "London Strings".

It has played on the film soundtracks of Amadeus (1984), and The English Patient; its best-selling recording is the Amadeus soundtrack. The Academy also helped record the UEFA Champions League Anthem with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Read more on Last.fm.
