Relaxed Performances

Free relaxed concerts at LSO St Luke's

Join us for a free, 45-minute informal concert at LSO St Luke’s from 12.30-1.15pm.

LSO musicians perform chamber music in the beautiful surroundings of LSO St Luke’s on Old Street. The concerts are informal and are presented by Rachel Leach, and there is a chance to ask questions at the end of the concert.

These performances are particularly suitable for individuals or groups who feel more comfortable attending concerts in a relaxed environment. Everyone is welcome including people with autism, sensory and communication impairments and learning disabilities.

Forthcoming concerts

We are delighted to return to LSO St Luke's this Summer with a Relaxed Performance that will be streamed live for free on our YouTube channel.
