A free open-air concert in the heart of London.
Trafalgar Square will once again be transformed into a giant free music stage as Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra present BMW Classics on Sunday 30 June 2019.
Simon Rattle will take to the stage to conduct 100 musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra, alongside 55 young musicians from the LSO On Track programme in East London and 20 musicians from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
The dance-inspired programme will feature music by Dvořák, Poulenc and Ravel, and include a world premiere – Tuquos – by Bushra El-Turk.
The concert will also be streamed live and for free on the LSO YouTube channel.
