Half Six Fix

Half Six Fix

An early evening music fix, with live introductions from our conductors and musicians.

Kick-start your evening with a Half Six Fix concert.

Settle in for one piece of music performed by the LSO, in a 60-minute concert starting at 6.30pm. You’ll hear direct from the performers about what they think makes the music so great, and big screens will bring you closer to the action. Plus you can read more about the music and artists on your phone during the concert with our digital guide.

The London Symphony Orchestra’s regular Half Six Fix is a quick shot rather than the full classical cocktail: one hour; one symphony; no messing around. – inews
