Happy Birthday Beethoven!

beethoven-bday3

Yesterday at St John’s Smith Square the LMP & Howard Shelley celebrated the anniversary of Beethoven’s birthday with a lunchtime concert exploring his 3rd piano concerto. This performance marked the third concert in the Beethoven Explored series and was the LMP’s final concert of 2015.

Guests were all invited to join in the festivities and enjoy a beautiful cake baked by co-principal cellist Julia Desbruslais after the concert.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the concert and helped with the eating of cake! Looking forward to seeing you all again in the New Year for the remaining concerts in the Mozart & Beethoven Explored series.

3 weeks to go! Give School Children A Voice with ‘For an Unknown Soldier’ Recording

21 Days Left!

We’ve got just 3 weeks to go on our #DoveKickStarter campaign and have raised £3,533 out of £21,000 – 17% of our end goal. We would like to say a massive thank you from everyone at the London Mozart Players to all those who have backed the campaign already.

This important project will give local Croydon primary school children the chance to get involved in commemorating the legacy of WW1 veterans. Not only does this project bring together the old and very young in a joint commemoration of the First World War, but it also gives young children the unique opportunity to become recording artists with a world-famous orchestra. Making this music accessible to the younger generation and getting them involved in the remembrance of such an important historic event is a cause close to our hearts.

The Rewards for Backers

Not only does this campaign give you the chance to support a really worthy cause, but our #DoveDonors also get exclusive rewards only accessible to those backing the project.

The wonderful thing about crowd-funding is that every penny counts, no donation is too small or large. Visit our KickStarter page to find out more about the rewards or to back the project so that this historic piece of music can live on through the children of today.

Please share this project on social media to spread the word, don’t forget to tag in @mozartplayers and #DoveKickStarter in your tweets!
