LSO Friends in 2012/13
Each season, LSO Friends support an LSO concert at the Barbican, a range of LSO Discovery projects and also endow the chair of a Principal LSO musician. We also hold regular exclusive events for LSO Friends where you can meet the players and gain an insight into the workings of the Orchestra.
For the 2012/13 season, LSO Friends have supported the following range of projects:
The LSO Friends supported the concert on 18 December 2012 with Valery Gergiev conducting a programme of Brahms and Szymanowski's Song Of The Night, along with Tenor soloist Toby Spence. After the concert we hosted backstage mulled wine with LSO players exclusively for LSO Friends.
LSO Discovery projects
This season the LSO Friends have supported the Friday Lunchtime Concerts, Early Years Outreach and LSO Play.
The LSO Friends Chair Endow for 2012/13 is Principal Bass Clarinetist, Lorenzo Iosco. Lorenzo joined the LSO in 2009, and has become a popular and familiar member of the woodwind section, often posting behind the scenes photos online from rehearsals and tours!

10 June 2013 - LSO Friends Chair Endow Recital
This season's Chair Endow was Principal Bass Clarinet, Lorenzo Iosco. Lorenzo performed a delightful programme, which included pieces by Verdi and a UK Premiere of a piece written for Bass Clarinet by Eduardo Morales-Caso, with exceptional virtuosity.
