Music Academy of the West / London Symphony Orchestra Partnership

Signature Event: Music Academy of the West / London Symphony Orchestra Partnership with Introduction of the 2021 Keston MAX Winners & Premiere LSO Chamber Concert

Music Academy of the West and London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) enjoy an educational and performance exchange. This summer, five LSO Principals coached Academy fellows, and through a rigorous coaching and audition process 12 Academy fellows were selected to travel to London to perform with the LSO and Music Director Sir Simon Rattle in April 2021. In this video, Keston MAX winners and LSO musicians introduce themselves, followed by a lively chamber concert filmed especially by the LSO for this Concert Hall Online. Learn about the process of orchestra auditions (specifically the orchestral excerpt) and how that plays into the LSO Partnership in today’s Resonance Blog post. READ THE BLOG PROGRAM NOTES
