Support LCO

The London City Orchestra aspires to become one of the leading non-professional orchestras in London. It receives no public funding and is a not-for-profit organisation run by a dedicated committee and a board of trustees. LCO is very committed to support music making throughout our city, and to make an impact in our community. Among other initiatives, we have a mentorship programme (Professional Development Programme or PDP) for young musical students wishing to obtain more experience in an orchestra. We also aim to sponsor at least 3 or 4 of our members per term, players who might otherwise not be able to afford to play in an orchestra.

 Your support allows us to fulfil our mission of nurturing rising talent in both the professional and amateur music worlds, as well as to perform quality music to an eager audience while positively impacting our community through outreach and benefit projects and ensuring a sustainable future for our orchestra.
