Philanthropy and specific projects

The LSO is indebted to generous individuals who provide crucial philanthropic support to particular projects close to their heart. 

With an extensive artistic and educational programme, and a truly global reach through touring and digital broadcast, the LSO is uniquely positioned to use the transformative power of music to change lives. Indeed, now more than ever, our ambitious and entrepreneurial spirit seeks to redefine the role of an Orchestra in the 21st century and the impact we can achieve, thanks to our philanthropic partners. 

"After recent performances I don’t need any convincing of the orchestra’s brilliance or of our wisdom in supporting it. I tell everyone I meet how proud I am to be associated with it."  (Richard Hardie, LSO Board Member and Patron)

"Congratulations to the LSO Discovery team for achieving so much during these testing times. We are impressed by the breadth of your reach, the number of school visits and the educational value of your instrument demonstration videos. We continue to believe in the importance of your work with young people and sincerely hope that normal operating conditions will return soon. Meanwhile, keep nurturing the fighting spirit that has served you so well since the pandemic hit."  (Peter and Christine, Switzerland)

Wherever your passion lies – whether supporting a well-loved piece of repertoire, a favourite soloist or LSO musician, enabling an impactful education project, or even commissioning a new work - your support could make possible a part of the LSO’s world-leading programme.
