In light of the current coronavirus lockdown, and government rules regarding gatherings, all public performances and workshops at the Barbican and LSO St Luke’s have been cancelled or postponed until further notice. Initially this period covers all public events from Monday 16 March up until Tuesday 30 June 2020, but we will continue to review this over the coming weeks, and will be in touch as soon as possible if this changes.
We appreciate your support during this time, and ask that you bear with us and the Box Office as ticket-holders are notified. If you have booked a ticket for something that’s been cancelled, you will be able claim a refund or exchange your tickets and the Barbican Centre Box Office will be in touch soon. A large number of events at the Barbican and LSO St Luke’s are being cancelled and postponed, so we ask that you are patient and avoid contacting the Box Office directly at this stage.
We are saddened to have to cancel performances, but the health and wellbeing of our audience-members, musicians and staff is of the utmost importance. We know that music can bring comfort, hope and community in difficult times, and our mission remains to ensure that this is available to everyone, everywhere. In the coming weeks we will be using our online channels to share videos of performances, articles, interviews and playlists. We invite you to join us, and to connect with other music-lovers around the world.
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.
In this concert, trace the evolution of chamber music for strings and guitar, as LSO Musicians and guitarist Michael Christian Durrant take us from the 18th to the 20th century.
This term, we’ll be exploring music by American composers. There will be introductions from presenter Rachel Leach, who’ll tell you more about the music and the instruments, and you’ll have the chance to ask Rachel and the musicians your own burning questions.
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.
