LPO Junior Artists: Overture Day


LPO are delighted to let you know that applications for the LPO Junior Artists: Overture Day are now open. This is taking place on Tuesday 2 August 2022 at Regent Hall, 275 Oxford Street, W1C 2DJ from 10.30 – 17.00.

These orchestral days are for 11-14-year-old orchestral players to join LPO musicians and members of our talent schemes for a fun day of music-making and professional insights.

In this Overture day, LPO will look at music with uncommon time signatures, enjoying the wonderfully wonky world of 5s and 7s through extracts from Stravinsky’s Firebird and Schifrin’s Mission Impossible. Young musicians will meet LPO players, Foyle Future First musicians and members of the LPO Junior Artists scheme and play together as an ensemble. They will also get tips on their playing and next steps in music, as well as find out what happens behind the scenes of a professional orchestra. The day is for young musicians aged 11 – 14 and Grade 4+ standard on their orchestral instrument. Applications are open to all but priority will be given to young musicians from under-represented backgrounds and communities, who may be eligible for LPO Junior Artists in the future.

For more information, or to apply on behalf of a young person, visit lpo.org.uk/overture.

Participation is free. The deadline for applications is 17.00, Sunday 3 July 2022.

If you would like to help us continue to provide high quality music education to all the young people of Southwark your donation is greatly appreciated.
