Happy 85th birthday to our Conductor Laureate and former Principal Conductor André Previn. He's had a very long career, but the most famous moment of it is of course his appearance on the Morecambe and Wise Show in 1971. Still extremely funny today.

Tomorrow night at the City of London Festival at St Paul's Cathedral (sold out!) we'll be tackling this little number... No it's not maths homework, it's Penderecki's Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima. Graphic scores are not something we see every day! #challenging

It has been quite a week for spectacular concert venues! Last night we popped to Italy to play in the Ravello Festival. And it is absolutely beautiful! Even though it rained briefly (hence the rainbow) and there were several wind-related music malfunctions...

A little look behind the scenes at our Stage and Transport team, led by Manager Alan Goode. With the roadies the LSO would not be able to function - from setting up rehearsals, booking freight and protecting fragile instruments to moving entire wardrobes of stage clothes and driving the truck all night, these guys do it all and are the unsung heroes of orchestras. Meet Alan in this short film.

What an amazing week! A Singing Day, the debut of Met Opera conductor Fabio Luisi, a huge gathering of under 5s for an outdoor concert at LSO St Luke's, our annual Rites of Passage concert in which the next generation of young musicians performed with the LSO... but do we get a quiet weekend? NO WE DO NOT!

Tomorrow: a series of world premieres at LSO St Luke's by young composers on our Soundhub programme (check this out! http://www.change-ringing.co.uk/) and the last concert in our 2013/14 London season on Sunday, which includes Messiaen's rather epic Turangalila-Symphonie.

We are looking for someone to lead our community and education programme, LSO Discovery. At nearly 25 years old, LSO Discovery is one of the largest of its kind in the world and so we need someone very special to take care of this amazing, wonderful, life-changing, essential (and many adjectives besides) part of our work, particularly at a time when music education is under threat. 

Does this sound like you? Then hop over to our website and get the full details and an application form. You have until 2 July to apply. http://bit.ly/1njVqXg

Our percussion section has just received this 49 page score for a forthcoming concert. How many music stands will they need to fit this on?!

Family and Schools' concerts in the last two days - we've been playing to enthusiastic houses of children for the last 36 hours and it felt GREAT! Congratulations in particular to the LSO Youth Choir, who performed magnificently at yesterday's Family Concert, and are pictured below in red along the back in this pic taken by audience member Nicholas Parsons and posted originally on Twitter https://twitter.com/NDP31/status/478275567998210048/photo/1

Today is the LSO's 110th birthday - on 9 June 1904 the LSO played its first ever concert in the Queen's Hall in London. It was an act of rebellion - 46 members of the Queen's Hall Orchestra had resigned during a dispute over working conditions, and had reorganised themselves into a brand new orchestra. Our pioneering spirit is still strong within us today. Here's to the founders!

If you like historical facts we've been delving into the LSO's archives all day. You can see all the facts on the hashtag #lso110  on Twitter https://twitter.com/hashtag/lso110. Enjoy!

70 years ago today the largest seaborne invasion in history was underway on the Normandy beaches, and we remember the sacrifices made on all sides in securing the future that we all enjoy today.

Meanwhile back in London the LSO was engaged in what can only be described as keeping the moral of Londoners high. The first orchestra to resume concert-giving after the initial shutdown of public entertainment at the outbreak of war, the LSO undertook tours to play for the soldiers at barracks around the UK under the auspices of the Entertainments National Service Association.

On 6 June 1944 the LSO was in London, performing at the Cambridge Theatre, which had been pressed into service after the destruction of the Queen's Hall in an air raid:
Beethoven Corialanus Overture
Beethoven Rondino for Woodwind Instruments
Beethoven Violin Concerto, LSO Leader George Stratton playing... more »

We are sad to hear of the death of our former Principal Cello, Douglas Cummings, last night. Aged 22 when he joined in 1969, Dougie was the youngest Principal that the Orchestra had ever appointed to that date and quickly became a legend. He suffered a brain haemorrhage in 1982 and had endured a long illness, but was a regular face in the audience at LSO concerts right up until the end.

LSO cellist Eve-Marie Caravassilis wanted to show what being on tour is an orchestra was REALLY like, so while we were on our Asian tour last month she strapped on her GoPro and set about interviewing her colleagues and capturing her adventures. Here's the result. It's well worth watching to the end!

Sir Neville Marriner, founder of +Academy of St Martin in the Fields and former LSO Principal Second Violin, way back in the 1950s and 60s, turns 90 today. We wish him a very happy birthday. A couple of week's ago he was honoured with a birthday concert at the Royal Festival Hall, which was happily recorded and can be watched in full on the +Classic FM website: http://bit.ly/1n8vl0G. It's also Neville Marriner day on Classic FM, so do drop in and have a listen to his many great recordings. #marrinerat90

Happy 85th birthday to our Conductor Laureate and former Principal Conductor André Previn. He's had a very long career, but the most famous moment of it is of course his appearance on the Morecambe and Wise Show in 1971. Still extremely funny today.
