Support the Orchestra

The LSO is a registered charity and relies solely on income from ticket sales, members’ subscriptions, Friends of the LSO, Patrons, and fees from advertisers in the concert programmes, to ensure that the long and fine tradition of music making established by Sir Malcolm Sargent continues. You can assist us this season by buying tickets for our concerts in the De Montfort Hall, by becoming a Friend or Patron, or by advertising in our concert programmes.

Become a Friend
