In the tenth year of this ground-breaking programme, the LSO and its East London partner organisations put music, creativity and community centre-stage once again, as over 150 young musicians and the full might of the London Symphony Orchestra explode onto the Barbican stage.
Rhythm and dance are the threads tying together music by Beethoven, John Adams and three brand new works. Plus, see the foyers come to life with live performances before and after the concert.
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, which puts young East Londoners on a world-class stage with LSO artists to create inspirational performances.
Sir Simon Rattle explains why it's so important to give young people the opportunities to perform on the biggest stages.
To celebrate 10 years of music-making with young people in East London we wanted to provide a space for them to present themselves online.
We have invited six bloggers to take part and to write and produce content about themselves, about their music-making and about their lives in East London. This space is an expression of what arts and culture means to them today.
