The LSO is sad to hear of the death of its friend and long-time collaborator, the film composer James Horner, yesterday. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this sad time.

The LSO recorded 16 soundtracks with James over more than 20 years. In this interview, recorded back in 2009, he says some very nice things about working with us and the relationship we shared with him.

Just came across this video of our recently retired pianist John Alley at the 1992 Proms. He's playing a Shostakovich cadenza. But you won't believe what happens next!

A lovely video by Yamaha in which our Co-Principal Trombone Peter Moore talks about his Yamaha instrument, his life in the LSO and how he got his start in life from brass bands in Manchester. Pete is such a great ambassador for young musicians, at only 19 years old. Well worth a watch.

We kick off the LSO International Violin Festival (April–June 2015 ) with the chance to chat live to Roman Simovic, Leader of the London Symphony Orchestra. What's life like in the LSO? How does he balance this with his solo career? How do you get a career started? What difference does having a Strad make, and can you even tell the difference between an expensive violin and a cheap one?

Come and hangout with Roman. We have eight places for the public to join this Hangout. To be in with a chance to take part, send us a question for Roman by Wednesday 8 April in one of the following ways:

1. Put a comment on this thread

We've been in Santa Barbara and Palm Desert over the last couple of days - some amazing sights and amazing audiences. Today is a much needed rest day, and we're heading down to play in Costa Mesa and San Diego this weekend.

A bit of a scramble for last night's tour stop at Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA - half the orchestra was stranded in San Francisco on a cancelled plane and only just made it to the very brief rehearsal before the concert... only to find that their suitcases had not arrived! Cue much hilarity as outfits were cobbled together from the suitcases that did make it. And yes, that's John Williams addressing the orchestra in the last photo. What a night! On to Santa Barbara today.

A gorgeous photo of a hummingbird, taken yesterday by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco by our Co-Principal Second Violin Tom Norris: a great violinist AND a great photographer.

We're on our way to LA for tonight's concert at Disney Hall, home of the LA Phil, who have loaned it to us while they're on tour in China.

So far on this tour we've played two concerts: one on the east coast (NYC) and one on the west coast (Davis). But the best bit so far was a day off on Friday, during which we enjoyed what San Francisco and the surrounding area has to offer. Here's just a few pics of what we all got up to.

Our players explain why celebrating these two milestones with Michael Tilson Thomas – his 70th birthday and 45 years of working with the LSO – is so important.
