You, your family, and your associates are warmly invited to the Barbican Centre for an evening full of virtuosity, folk rhythms, and evocative storytelling. Sir Antonio Pappano, as he begins his first season as Chief Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, is joined by pianist Yuja Wang, who brings glamour and sensitivity in equal measure to the exciting repertoire.

We hope many Liverymen and their guests will be able to join us for this key annual event in the City of London calendar – a special occasion to celebrate arts and culture in the Square Mile and for the LSO to express gratitude to the companies, clubs, and guilds of the City that support the world-class music-making happening on their doorstep.

There are a limited number of seats available, so we advise that you book as soon as possible.
