LSO On Track

Great music is being made every day in East London. This is something LSO On Track wants to shout about by putting young East Londoners on a world-class stage with LSO artists to create inspirational performances.

LSO On Track is a partnership between the LSO and ten East London Music Services, in collaboration with the Barbican and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. This partnership puts the LSO at the heart of the Music Education Hubs in East London, in the boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Bexley, Greenwich, Hackney, Havering, Lewisham, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest.

Find out how you can get involved in projects – as a young person taking part in music making projects, a school coming to see the LSO perform at the Barbican or LSO St Luke's, or as a teacher through our Music in the Classroom programme for teachers.

If your school is not located in East London, please visit the Schools & Young people section for available activities.
