Discovery Days

Immerse yourself in composers' lives and music at LSO Discovery Days

Taking place during the day of an LSO concert, each Discovery Day includes access to the morning rehearsal^ at the Barbicam, followed by a talk from an expert guest speaker at LSO St Luke's, with chamber music performed by LSO players and occasionally Q&A sessions with the artists. You are then welcome to book tickets for the evening concert at the Barbican.

Previous Discovery Days have focused on Peter Maxwell Davies, Britten, Schubert, Shostakovich, Haydn, Elgar, Dutilleux, Prokofiev, Strauss, James MacMillan, Stravinsky, John Adams, Sibelius, Schumann, Steve Reich and Mozart, among many others.
