The London Symphony Orchestra was established in 1904 and has a unique ethos. As a musical collective, it is built on artistic ownership and partnership. With an inimitable signature sound, the LSO’s mission is to bring the greatest music to the greatest number of people. The LSO has been the only Resident Orchestra at the Barbican Centre in the City of London since it opened in 1982, giving 70 symphonic concerts there every year. The Orchestra works with a family of artists led by Sir Simon Rattle as Music Director, with Principal Guest Conductors Gianandrea Noseda and François-Xavier Roth, Michael Tilson Thomas as Conductor Laureate and Conductor Emeritus André Previn. Through LSO Discovery, it is a pioneer of music education, ofering musical experiences to 60,000 people every year at its music education centre LSO St Luke’s on Old Street, across East London and further afield. With the formation of its own record label LSO Live in 1999 the LSO pioneered a revolution in recording live orchestral music. The LSO strives to embrace new digital technologies and its music making is enjoyed around the world via digital broadcasts, downloads, streaming, web-based platforms and in virtual reality. The LSO is funded by Arts Council England and the City of London Corporation. Additionally, it is a highly successful creative enterprise, with 80% of all funding self-generated.

The lead sponsors of the London Symphony Orchestra partnership are Linda and Michael Keston and Mary Lynn and Warren Staley.

Additional support has been provided in remembrance of Léni Fé Bland.
