Throughout recorded history, music has accompanied soldiers marching to war, but it has also mourned the loss and attempted to help survivors come to terms with the devastation that occurs.

This one-day Study Day exploring the relationship between conflict and creativity complements the LSO's evening performance of Sally Beamish's Equal Voices, commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I.

Hugh McManners, Director of The Scars of War Foundation
