Applications for  the next LPO Junior Artists: Overture Day are now open!

These orchestral days are for 11-14-year-old orchestral players to join LPO musicians and members of our talent schemes for a fun day of music-making and professional insights.

The next LPO Junior Artists: Overture Day is taking place on Tuesday 2 August 2022 at Regent Hall, 275 Oxford Street, W1C 2DJ from 10.30 – 17.00.

Participation is free. The deadline for applications is 17.00, Sunday 3 July 2022.

In this Overture day, music with uncommon time signatures, are explored eg enjoying the wonderfully wonky world of 5s and 7s through extracts from Stravinsky’s Firebird and Schifrin’s Mission Impossible.

Young musicians will meet LPO players, Foyle Future First musicians and members of the LPO Junior Artists scheme and play together as an ensemble. They will also get tips on their playing and next steps in music, as well as find out what happens behind the scenes of a professional orchestra.

The day is for young musicians aged 11 – 14 and Grade 4+ standard on their orchestral instrument. Applications are open to all but priority will be given to young musicians from under-represented backgrounds and communities, who may be eligible for LPO Junior Artists in the future.
