Website Banner Smaller


The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2019 Gala event – Spring is in the Air – takes place on Wednesday 1 May, returning to the elegant setting of Whitehall’s Banqueting House.

On arrival, guests will enjoy a delightful Champagne Taittinger reception in the vaulted Undercroft before making their way to the Main Hall, with its adorned Rubens’ ceiling and spectacular Italianate architecture.

In 2019, we want you to stand with us as we show and share with the world our rare and special passion for the timeless art of orchestral music through our vital Player Appeal. We are asking you to Be Instrumental in our future and in our ability to continue doing all that you know us for.

The 2019 Gala sees the Orchestra’s Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor, Vladimir Jurowski, conduct a spectacular performance by the LPO with special guest artists violinist Nicola Benedetti and soprano Miah Persson.

In addition to these extraordinary performances, we will be holding an exclusive silent auction aiming to build on the incredible £200,000 raised at last year’s event.

To join us at this spectacular event please consider buying a table or individual tickets. For more information about the Gala, please contact our Events Team on 020 7840 4209 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
