Welcome to LCOnline live webcasts!
During this period of pause and reflection for non-professional live music making, we are using this opportunity to run a series of live online webcasts every two weeks, for which we hope you can join us!
We will be including:
exciting guests discussing topics and issues facing ‘classical’ music such as contemporary music, historically-informed performance and concert programming
interactive music-themed games
round-ups of online content including upcoming concerts and subscriptions related to classical music for you to enjoy
We will send you the event's link during the week by signing up to the LCO Online mailing list via this form below.
Next Monday, 29h March at 20:00 is our fourth live webcast with Stephen Marquiss as our guest.
Stephen Marquiss, pianist and musical innovator, chats to James and Imogen about finding the joy in playing, challenging orthodoxies, and a decade of investing in community music projects.
Finding your musical voice
Next Monday, 15th March at 20:00 is our third live webcast with Chris George as our guest.
LCO's dynamic associate conductor refreshes our approach to practice and performance through his musical experiences and ideas for lockdown, all interspersed with his favourite music.
Letting music make your life better!
Next Monday 15th February at 20:00 is our second live webcast with special guest composer and LCO alumnus Amy Crankshaw. Amy has won many accolades and awards, and is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Music Composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. LCO performed her premiere of Paper Bird whilst Amy was composer in residence with LCO in 2016.
‘Highly engaging’, ‘inventive’ and ‘distinctive’ are just some of the ways to describe Amy's music, and we will take pleasure in exploring her journey through composition, whilst hearing her thoughts on where we are at with contemporary music, why engagement can be challenging, and how to shake things up!
Please do visit her website to learn more, and I am sure you will enjoy listening to the interview. Please also invite partners, friends and family to join us!
