A Symphony on Stage

In 2015 LAO are collaborating with Rough Fiction Theatre Company & the Barbican/Guildhall Creative Learning Department, on a new project called “A Symphony on Stage”. Our project will include a week in the Barbican Pit Theatre, working with actors and musicians to create a new piece of symphonic theatre. There will be a showcase performance at LSO St Luke’s in July. We are thrilled that the Arts Council England have agreed to support this project, and we are looking forward to confirming further partnerships soon. Watch this space!

London Arts Orchestra

London Arts Orchestra

London Arts Orchestra was founded in 2009 with the aim of making orchestral music more accessible to a wider audience.

We put a lot of thought into crafting a complete concert experience that goes beyond the music. How can we best illuminate an interesting aspect of the piece’s history? Is there a narrative behind the music that allows us to work with actors or artists? How can we create an atmosphere in the concert hall that best allows you to enjoy that specific piece, at that specific time?
