The LPO Junior Artists Programme supports exceptionally talented teenage musicians from backgrounds currently under-represented in professional UK orchestras.

Junior Artists spend a season with us and become fully immersed in the workings of the LPO. They are each mentored by a member of the Orchestra, and take part in a variety of behind-the-scenes and skills-building activities, as well as events to inspire future generations of orchestral players.

Join us for a thrilling performance by our Junior Artists, as they play alongside LPO musicians, Foyle Future Firsts and Junior Artist alumni in a celebration of vibrant young talent, all under the baton of LPO Fellow Conductor Luis Castillo-Briceño. The programme features exciting lesser-known music alongside well-loved classics, and a world premiere by Tayla-Leigh Payne (LPO Young Composer 2022/23), composed especially for and with the input of our 8 Junior Artists.

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

Please note a change of date from originally advertised.
