London Symphony Orchestra Open-Air Concert

5:00pm – 7:00pm
Free

Hear London’s oldest symphony orchestra for free in an open-air concert in Trafalgar Square.  The LSO will play their annual BMW Open Air Classics series along with 50 young musicians from the LSO On Track programme in East London as well as musicians from the Guildhall School of Music. The programme will feature a theme of dance and ballet by Dvořák, Massenet, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky and includes a world premiere by Kate Whitley, founder of Peckham’s Multi-Story Orchestra.

The performance in being held as part of a new festival called Sounds Like London, promoted by the Mayor of London and highlighting women in music.

As with all free events, we recommend getting there early, and not to dampen anyone’s festivities, but there is always a chance of rain, so bring something waterproof—though not umbrellas, they ruin concert viewing!
