Website Banner Smaller

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

On arrival, guests enjoyed 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.

The 2019 Gala saw 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 held an exclusive silent auction and raised over £200,000 for the orchestra.

In 2019, want you to stand with us to help us 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.
