The London Philharmonic Orchestra brings together some of the UK’s most talented young musicians and composers for an evening exploring the common thread of Gregorian chant through a thousand years of music.

World premieres of new orchestral works from the LPO’s Young Composers, each based on a different chant melody, are woven into a programme that delves into the history of Gregorian chant music, presented by the joint forces of the LPO Foyle Future Firsts, accomplished young chamber choir echo, and LPO players under the baton of Sir James MacMillan.

Join us as the sacred and secular, choral and instrumental, and old and new all find a common language at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
