Meet the London Symphony Orchestra
Our school has strong links with the LSO and the children regularly take part in LSO Discovery projects. Experience one of the world´s leading orchestras like never before.
Compose your own piece of music.
Music inspired by cities: Listen to Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture In London Town (1900), Vaughn Williams’s A London Symphony (1914) and Philip Lane’s London Salute (1982). How do these classical pieces compare? How do they convey London? Which is your favourite and why? Compare these with popular music London Calling by The Clash, Hometown Glory by Adele and Waterloo Sunset by The Kinks. How do these artists depict London? What atmosphere do they create? How do they achieve that?
