What's On Summer 2021

Summer 2021 Concerts: Southbank Centre and Online

We can't wait to welcome you back to the Royal Festival Hall for our first live concert of the year, Debut Sounds: Bunker Music. The LPO Young Composers present world premieres of their works, uniquely inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our online concert series continues featuring Stephen Hough as he takes on Brahms's First Piano Concerto, and a grand finale for Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski with a full-length concert performance of Swan Lake.

All concerts will be available to watch on Marquee TV, and will be free to access for 7 days, after which they will be added to the LPO collection of concerts, and accessible to Marquee subscribers. Our full autumn season is also currently available to Marquee TV subscribers.

In order to watch the concerts, you will need to create a free account with Marquee TV and log in. Click here for instructions on how to do so.

We believe that music matters. It moves, inspires and excites us and should be accessible to everyone. It is for this reason our performances on Marquee TV are free for everyone to enjoy. However with no current ticket income to support the costs of our work your support is more vital than ever. If you watch our Marquee TV performances, please consider making a donation, if you are able to do so, to help sustain the LPO and our musicians. A donation of £10 or £20 will make such a difference and with your help we will survive and thrive as one of the world’s great orchestras.
