Change of programme
Please note that this programme differs to some earlier listings.

Chart a course through Europe as we celebrate the unique Baroque styles of France, Spain, Italy and Germany. In each concert, we’ll examine the music of one country, drawing together the fascinating links and cross-fertilisation between composers’ sounds and styles.

From the heartfelt, toe-tapping Italian style to the more abstract technicality of the German Baroque, get up close to ancient period instruments in the Jerwood Hall as we embark on a sonic odyssey through 17th and 18th century Europe.

Need to know

We are doing everything we can to make your visit safe and enjoyable. Below are answers to some FAQs, and you can find further information here.

How are seats at LSO St Luke's arranged?

The Jerwood Hall has been configured for social distancing with fewer seats available, set as single tickets or in groups of twos. Clusters are separated by at least one empty seat and people from different household groups will be at least 1 metre apart from each other when seated. We ask you to not swap seats so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.

What other safety measures are in place once inside?

  • Staff and audience members must wear a face covering inside LSO St Luke's at all times unless exempt.
  • Seats in the Jerwood Hall are laid out at a safe distance from each other.
  • The hall and each seat will be cleaned between performances.
  • A one-way system is in operation so you can move safely through the venue.
  • Hand sanitising stations are positioned at the entrance and around the building.
  • Programme notes are now solely digital and donation points use contactless technology.
  • Each member of every party of visitors is being asked to provide their name and contact details, and retaining these details for 21 days, in compliance with NHS Test & Trace.
  • An official NHS QR code poster is displayed at the entrance to the venue, so visitors can 'check in' on the NHS Test & Trace app.
  • Audience members are asked not to arrive earlier than 30 minutes before concerts.

What happens if a concert is cancelled or postponed?

In the event of cancellations or postponements, all audience members will be given the option of a refund, exchange or credit.
