Friday Lunchtime Concerts

Free concerts at LSO St Luke's

Want to know more about classical music but not sure where to start?

Make the most of your lunchbreak and enjoy a free, 45-minute informal concert at LSO St Luke’s. With live performances and introductions from presenter Rachel Leach, these free concerts are the perfect opportunity to learn more about music and the instruments of the orchestra, so just turn up and enjoy!

This autumn, we’re exploring music performed by duos; two musical voices weaving and merging through contemporary and classical compositions. Featuring strings, percussion, brass and keys, this is a series of electrifying performances from musicians pushed to new heights by the energy of their partners.

Each concert begins at 12.30pm and lasts for 45 minutes. The Café is open for light refreshments before the concert from 11.30am and after the concert until 2pm. The concerts are suitable for those over the age of 5.


There's no need to book, the concerts are free and you can just turn up on the day. To avoid disappointment please arrive in good time to get a seat, as these concerts are popular!
