Summer Gala 2018
Each season the special events calendar culminates in a Gala Evening in support of the Orchestra's work
At this year’s Gala, on Monday 11 June 2018, we are delighted to be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of our Education & Community Programme in the stunning surroundings of the City of London’s Guildhall. Guests will be greeted with a Champagne Taittinger reception in the Old Library, before sitting for dinner in the Great Hall, with its high-arched ceiling and Gothic stained-glass windows.
For three decades the London Philharmonic Orchestra has taken itself off the concert platform and into the community, driven by the desire to share the power and wonder of orchestral music with everyone. On this Gala evening Vladimir Jurowski, the Orchestra’s Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor, will conduct special guest artists in a spectacular performance that also showcases some of the inspirational educational work that goes on day to day, week to week.
In addition to these exceptional musical performances we will be hosting both silent and live auctions and aim to achieve even more than the fantastic £242,000 that was raised last year.
