Established in 1904, the LSO was one of the first orchestras shaped by its musicians. Since then, generations of remarkable talents have built the LSO’s reputation for uncompromising quality, and inspirational repertoires.

Today, the LSO is ranked among the world’s top orchestras. The LSO has been Resident Orchestra at the Barbican in the City of London since the Centre opened in 1982. Every year it gives 70 concerts there and performs over a further 50 worldwide.

The LSO has a world-leading learning and community programme, LSO Discovery, based at LSO St Luke’s (right), home to the gamelan (centre), and where the LSO Community Choir (left) rehearse. LSO Community Choir members photographed are Nevo Burrell, Liz Cunningham, Sarah Cunningham, Rosaline Ogunro, Dan Knight, Nana-Ama Wood, Bernadette Skehan and Chris Bland.
