We are passionate about music. We believe live performance is an immersive and dynamic experience where the audience is as important to the concert as the musicians. Music has the power to transcend – contemporary and classical scores can bring together diverse audiences of all backgrounds to celebrate the joy of music. At our core, London Symphonia is a professional symphony committed to performing vibrant and bold musical experiences for London and the region.

 

The 2017-2018 Season will be announced soon. Tickets will be on sale in June 2017.

Brave New World

Metropolitan United Church

Kevin Mallon, Conductor | Leslie Fagan, Soprano

In this gala concert by the newly named orchestra, soprano Leslie Fagan joins London Symphonia for Christos Hatzis’ Four Songs on Poems by Elizabeth Bishop. The opening song, I Am In Need of Music, beautifully expresses the ensemble’s innate desire to connect through music. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, titled “From the New World,” symbolizes a new beginning for the group, just as it reflected Dvořák’s new perspectives from his time in America.
