LSO In Wartime: Create an Opera in a Day
Part of LSO Discovery LSO St Luke's
Sat 01 Nov 10am-4pm
Find out what life was like in London during the First World War, for ordinary people and LSO musicians - plus, create your own opera! On Saturday 1 November 2014, LSO Discovery, the London Symphony Orchestra’s world-leading education and community programme, will run a day-long project for families with children aged 8-11, at LSO St Luke's, its music education centre on Old Street. Inspired by Sally Beamish’s commemorative commission 'Equal Voices', which has its world premiere from the LSO and conductor Gianandrea Noseda at the Barbican the following night, the project will take World War I as its theme and explore, via the medium of music, aspects such as London in war-time and what happened to the London Symphony Orchestra (founded in 1904) and its musicians during the First World War. Kids and their parents will move around LSO St Luke's, gathering stories, meeting LSO players and working with workshop leaders towards creating a mini-opera for everyone to perform together at the end of the day.

This event is great for families because it's a chance for 8-11 year olds to get hands-on alongside their parents, make music with LSO musicians, sing and learn all about a key point in history.
