Join us for a one-hour concert by the London Symphony Orchestra starting at 6.30pm, followed by an exclusive post-concert networking reception with other music-lovers and young professionals.
Conductor François-Xavier Roth presents two landmark works by late-Romantic masters, musing on fantasy and philosophy. Debussy’s dreamlike Prélude à l’après-midi d’un Faune will be followed by Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra, famously used by Stanley Kubrick in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
This Half Six Fix concert is an exciting new concert format launched by the LSO in 2017, which shakes up the traditional classical music format in the following ways:
the conductor introduces the pieces, giving their own insights into the music
programme notes are available to view on your Android or iPhone device
screens highlight what's happening on stage in different sections of the Orchestra
audiences are welcome to bring their drinks into the concert hall
Whether you are new to classical music or an experienced concert-goer, we hope you will enjoy this new format.
After the concert you are invited to join a special post-concert networking reception, to meet other like-minded concert-goers, LSO musicians and members of the LSO team.
We are delighted to offer a limited number of 2-4-1 tickets for the concert and reception to LSO contacts, employees of LSO corporate supporters and other young professionals (aged 21 – 45).
