Following last year's inaugural open-air, free LSO concert in the square, the London Symphony Orchestra returns to give a Berlioz programme conducted by its principal conductor, Valery Gergiev. Berlioz’s Overture Le corsaire, Symphonie fantastique will form the basis of the concert, but additionally, in a performance of a specially arranged version of Symphonie fantastique by Gareth Glyn, 80 young musicians, including conservatoire students and LSO On Track young musicians from LSO Discovery, the Orchestra’s award-winning music education and community programme, will play alongside the LSO players. Large screens will be mounted on either side of the stage to allow the audience to witness the concert up close.
