Open Lectures & Talks
'Occasionally we are able to present pre-concert talks at the Barbican before LSO concerts, which give an insight into the music and artists, and often a glimpse behind the scenes at how a composer works or how a soloist maintains their busy schedule. Pre-concert talks are usually free and take place in the Barbican Hall or Fountain Room on the Foyer an hour before the concert.'

'The London Symphony Orchestra
is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading orchestras. Its many activities include an energetic and ground-breaking education and community programme LSO Discovery, a record company LSO Live, a music education centre LSO St Luke's and pioneering work in the field of digital music.
'Since its formation in 1904 it has always attracted excellent players from all over the world, many of whom have flourishing solo, chamber music and teaching careers alongside their orchestral work. The LSO draws on an enviable roster of soloists and conductors, including Principal Conductor Valery Gergiev, LSO President Sir Colin Davis, and Principal Guest Conductors Daniel Harding and Michael Tilson Thomas.'
