Sharing the Wonder Gala 2018
Each season the special events calendar culminates in a Gala Evening in support of the Orchestra's work
On Monday 11 June we were thrilled to Share the Wonder of music at our Summer Gala as we celebrated 30 inspiring years of our Education & Community Programme at the City’s illustrious Guildhall.
The musical programme, arranged by Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor, Vladimir Jurowski, highlighted the crucial side by side work that the Orchestra fosters with young people and community participants, and featured members of Foyle Future Firsts, LPO Junior Artists and LPO Young Composers. We were also delighted to welcome soloists Kristóf Baráti, Kate Royal and Angharad Lyddon to the stage.
Thanks to the generosity of our 300 guests supporters, over £210,000 has been raised so far. These much-needed funds will go directly towards supporting the work of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, particularly the key projects of the Education and Community programme that will enable us to continue to invest in the creation of future experiences for all.
