Autumn 2020 Season

Concerts and broadcasts from LSO St Luke's
September – December 2020

Our Autumn season will take place online on the various platforms of our broadcasting partners (NB payment required on some platforms), with six full concerts streamed for free on our own YouTube channel. We will also be uploading excerpts from our concerts to YouTube each week. Don't forget to subscribe to our channel to catch this weekly schedule of excerpts and to receive alerts when we're broadcasting live. As well as full orchestral concerts there will be a series of BBC Radio 3 chamber broadcasts, and LSO Discovery Friday Lunchtime Concerts streamed live on YouTube. 

Update as of 31 October 2020
Following the Prime Minister's announcement on Saturday 31 October, we are no longer able to welcome audiences to LSO St Luke's or the Barbican Centre between 5 November and 2 December 2020. We will continue to provide our music digitally to everyone during the weeks ahead, and will be in touch with all ticket-holders for affected events.
