The London Schools Symphony Orchestra and LGfL Partnership

We are proud to partner with the Centre for Young Musicians (CYM), a Division of the Guildhall School, and the London Schools Symphony Orchestra (LSSO) to further support high quality music education in schools across the capital.

The partnership supports the development of online teachers’ resources for LSSO concerts and host a comprehensive archive of LSSO activities since its creation in 1951.

In the future, resources to support the National Music Plan will be identified, using LSSO performances at the heart of the stimulus material.

The partnership has three elements:

  • The Concert support programme supports teachers and students attending the live concerts performed at the Barbican Centre three times a year with adapted programme notes to help ensure the maximum benefit of attending the concerts is achieved.
    The main resource includes some behind the scenes footage of the orchestra preparing for their concerts.
  • The LSSO Archive – A celebration of 60 years of musical heritage is hosted on LGfL and includes:
    • Audio and Video recordings of the LSSO
    • Programmes and related notes
    • Photographs of players and performers
    • Reviews of concerts
  • Further developments aim to include the creation of new music curriculum resources featuring LSSO performances from the archive and deconstructed excerpts explained by members of the orchestra and tutors.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
