In this summer of sport, the LSO joins in the fun and celebrates its own classical champions! We’ll award medals to the fastest, slowest, grandest and oddest music of all time while cheering on players as they compete to be the softest, loudest and of course, the best. Featuring music from William Tell, Spartacus, sabres and lightsabers – we’ll even introduce you to some music that actually won a medal at the 1932 Games!
Tickets: £4 under 16s; £10 adults
