Do you remember the first time you saw an orchestra live? Donate £9 and help us offer 2,500 children their first orchestral experience for free.
Every year the London Philharmonic Orchestra performs live to over 16,000 London school children through a series of specially-designed daytime concerts which link to what they are learning at school. The LPO is the only orchestra in the UK to offer specific and tailored orchestral concerts for all ages – from primary school children aged five, through to 18-year-old A-level students. Six out of ten children attending the concerts will be experiencing an orchestra for the very first time.
Tickets for the concerts cost £9. The majority of schools are asked to pay a nominal amount towards these costs. However, for the most disadvantaged schools in south London this amount still remains a barrier to attending. We want to enable 2,500 children from the most disadvantaged schools to be able to attend these concerts free of charge. We need your help to make this happen.
