London Medical Orchestra (LMO) celebrates 70 years of making music and supporting medical charities with a dramatic gala concert on the themes of joy and childhood.
The programme evokes childhood and joy, pairing Ernst von Dohnányi’s variations on Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star with Sergei Prokofiev’s final Symphony, commissioned by the Children’s Division of USSR State Radio. The concert opens with Gustav Holst’s portrayal of an ‘abundance of life and vitality’: Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity from The Planets. There will also be a world premiere of a new work by Nick Singer, on a theme of the London Medical Orchestra.
LMO is an amateur orchestra with a professional conductor and string section leaders, meeting weekly in North London during termtime, and giving three concerts a year. Founded in 1954 by refugee doctors from Central Europe, former conductors include Norman Del Mar, Colin Davis and Bernard Keefe. Conductor Sir Adrian Boult and cellist Jacqueline du Pré are among past Vice Presidents.
