Want to find out more about classical music, see world-class performers up-close for free, and liven up your lunchbreak?
Come along to one of our informal, 45-minute concerts at LSO St Luke’s, with performances by musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra and Guildhall School.
This term, as we mark 100 years of female suffrage in the UK, we celebrate some of the pioneering women in classical music over the last century – from figures like Ethel Smyth, who campaigned for the vote, equal rights and recognition a hundred years ago, to Judith Weir, one of the leading composers of today.
In this concert, hear music from Kaija Saariaho, pioneering British composer – and suffragette campaigner – Dame Ethel Smyth, and the influential composer and teacher Nadia Boulanger, played by LSO Principal Cello Rebecca Gilliver and pianist Sophia Rahman.
Our presenter Rachel Leach talks about the works and the instruments, and there are opportunities to ask questions of Rachel and the musicians.
Each concert begins at 12.30pm and lasts for 45 minutes. The Café is open for light refreshments before the concert from 11.30am and after the concert until 2pm.
To avoid disappointment please arrive in good time to get a seat, as these concerts are popular!
