LPO Showcase: Foyle Future Firsts and the Royal Academy of Music


  • Edward Gardner conductor
  • Foyle Future First musicians
  • Students from the Royal Academy of Music
  • Members of the LPO

The LPO’s Foyle Future Firsts Development Programme bridges the transition between education and the professional platform for 16 early-career orchestral musicians each year.

Join the current cohort of Future Firsts as they join forces with students from the Royal Academy of Music and members of the LPO for a vibrant performance conducted by the LPO’s Principal Conductor, Edward Gardner. The programme is inspired by memory, and features Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, each movement of which is dedicated to the memory of a friend of the composer who died in the First World War, along with other related repertoire.

This event takes place in the Royal Festival Hall auditorium and is free to attend, with no booking required.
