The LSO is proud to be Resident Orchestra at the Barbican Centre, where it performs around 70 concerts a year. LSO St Luke’s is the home of LSO Discovery. As well as offering chamber and solo recitals, it provides inspiring experiences for all kinds of music lovers. When the corridors aren't filled with music, the building is an ideal location for corporate and private events – this unique heritage space provides a canvas that can be easily adapted to suit any occasion.
