Spring 2021 Broadcasts

While we are not able to perform for live audiences in January and February, we will be releasing a programme of digital content and streamed broadcasts.

Recording activity at LSO St Luke's has been paused from 10 January, but we hope that we will be able to resume activity behind closed doors, in COVID-secure conditions, in due course.

This Spring we have partnered with Marquee TV to stream our orchestral concerts while we are not able to perform to a live audience. Our concerts are recorded at LSO St Luke's. Each concert will be available to watch for free for seven days (with registration), and thereafter will be available to watch on demand via a subscription.
