The LMP is a truly special orchestra made up of exceptional musicians supported by a family of committed patrons, friends and donors. We’re launching an appeal to raise £100,000 to support the orchestra during its 70th anniversary season and beyond.
Donations during our 70th year will be instrumental in extending the reach of our education and community initiatives, and also allow us to embark on an exciting year of music making.
