LPO Junior Artists: Overture

Become part of the LPO at an LPO Junior Artists Overture Day!

Junior Artists Overture

LPO Junior Artists Overture Days are immersive one-day events which take a hands-on, behind-the-scenes look at the world of a professional orchestra. You will become part of the LPO for a day; meeting LPO musicians and Junior Artists playing as an ensemble, getting tips on your playing and finding out how to take your next steps as a musician.

Do you play an orchestral instrument at Grade 4+ standard? Are you aged 11–14 and want to take your playing to the next level? Join the London Philharmonic Orchestra and find out about life in a professional orchestra at an event as part of our new LPO Junior Artists Overture strand. 

LPO Junior Artists is our exciting programme for talented musicians aged 15-19 from backgrounds under-represented in orchestral music. Our free Junior Artists Overture Days offer taster activities to younger players, with the opportunity to find out more about the main scheme, meet current LPO Junior Artists and take part in a day of behind-the-scenes action with the LPO.

During our Junior Artists Overture Days you will have the chance to:

  • Get a behind-the-scenes look at the world of a professional orchestra 
  • Discover a piece of repertoire as an ensemble and in sectionals with LPO musicians and Junior Artists
  • Explore creative improvisation with animateur Rachel Leach 
  • Hear from an LPO musician about their musical journey and pick up special tips for your own playing
  • Find out more about our Junior Artists programme from current members of the scheme and hear about other musical opportunities in your area
  • Parents can also get involved - we run Q&As all about the work we do with young musicians and what you can do to support your child's instrumental learning
