LSO Discovery Showcase

NB: Updated start time

LSO and Heart 'n' Soul musicians perform at LSO St Luke's

Curated by LSO animateur Rachel Leach, this showcase brings together the London Symphony Orchestra with participants from all across LSO Discovery’s work.

It all starts with a single spark … Come along to this year’s LSO Discovery Showcase, a concert bursting with joy and celebration. Involving nearly 200 performers from programmes supporting young people, communities and the next generation of musicians, this concert shines a light on the importance of bringing music to everybody. 

Kicking off the showcase in dramatic style, the Orchestra performs Manuel de Falla’s ‘Ritual Fire Dance’ from his magical ballet El amor brujo. Expect a blaze of sound with Light Dancing, a new piece by Eloise Gynn, an alumnus of LSO Panufnik Composers Scheme, and Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian’s piece, also an alumnus, showcases the flare of the next generation of performers. Closing the concert, all groups come together for a final crackle of activity in Rachel Leach’s piece A single spark.  


Soak up the atmosphere from 6.15pm in the Barbican Foyers and enjoy performances, installations and films by Discovery groups.

The end time for this concert will approximately 8.45pm (timings subject to change).
