LSO cellist Eve-Marie Caravassilis wanted to show what being on tour is an orchestra was REALLY like, so while we were on our Asian tour last month she strapped on her GoPro and set about interviewing her colleagues and capturing her adventures. Here's the result. It's well worth watching to the end!

Playing Teatro alla Scala in Milan tonight. This is one of the most holiest of holies in classical music, so we are greatly looking forward to it! It has been a difficult day on tour though - catch up with what's been happening on the LSO On Tour Blog: http://bit.ly/PGciN5

We've just left Dortmund on route to Freiburg. But can anyone tell us - why are there musical rhinos all over Dortmund?! They're everywhere! Cute, but mysterious.

As our name suggests, London is everything to the LSO. So we're thrilled to be one of a group of pioneers launching the new .london domain on 29 April. symphonyorchestra.london is on its way... http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/sign-up-for-the-webs-dot-london-revolution-business-leaders-urge-9264527.html
Dozens of senior London bosses today backed the Dot London revolution and urged other business leaders to follow their example.

Sir Neville Marriner, founder of +Academy of St Martin in the Fields and former LSO Principal Second Violin, way back in the 1950s and 60s, turns 90 today. We wish him a very happy birthday. A couple of week's ago he was honoured with a birthday concert at the Royal Festival Hall, which was happily recorded and can be watched in full on the +Classic FM website: http://bit.ly/1n8vl0G. It's also Neville Marriner day on Classic FM, so do drop in and have a listen to his many great recordings. #marrinerat90

Happy 85th birthday to our Conductor Laureate and former Principal Conductor André Previn. He's had a very long career, but the most famous moment of it is of course his appearance on the Morecambe and Wise Show in 1971. Still extremely funny today.

Story
Tagline
One of the world's top symphony orchestras, based at the Barbican Centre in London and the world
Introduction
Hello world. LSO calling. Thanks for just being here to read this. We hope to see you sometime at the Barbican in London, or perhaps on tour, or if not, then here in cyberspace is just fine. Pull up a chair and let's chat.

The London Symphony Orchestra is one of the world’s top orchestras. Our home is at the Barbican in the City of London, where we perform over 80 concerts every year, and at LSO St Luke’s, a converted 18th-century church just up the road which is the base for our LSO Discovery community and education programme. We also run a record label, LSO Live. Each year we tour to several different countries, and return to some regularly where we have residencies.
