The London Gay Symphony Orchestra is the only lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender orchestra in the UK.
The Orchestra prides itself on being run by its members, for its members. They have a repertoire committee that chooses the music they play and one of their aims is to develop the talents of all of their members. To that end they hold concerto auditions and composer auditions every year for both orchestra members and non-members alike.
Conducted by Simon Bowler, Soloist Martyn Robinson
Britten – Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
Finzi – Clarinet concerto op. 31
Bax – Symphony no. 5 in C sharp minor
