Discovery Assistant Eamonn McElevey has been working with the LSO for just a few weeks. He writes this report of one of his first projects, LSO On Track at the BMW LSO Open Air Classics in Trafalgar Square.
On Sunday 11 May 2014, a packed Trafalgar Square watched and listened as the LSO gave another awe-inspiring performance amidst the hustle and bustle of busy London. The third item in the all-Prokofiev programme was Lieutenant Kijé, which was made somewhat more special as it included a group of talented, up-and-coming young musicians. Playing alongside their more experienced counterparts was no doubt a nerve-wracking experience but the performance was slick and professional and all involved did themselves proud.
