Make A Difference

As with so many arts organisations, the income we receive from ticket sales only covers a fraction of our costs. Everything we do – whether in the concert hall or in the community – is only made possible thanks to the incredible generosity of our friends and supporters.

And we’re hungry for more – we want to perform more concerts, provide more debuts for exciting new artists, and extend our community outreach programme, LCO Music Junction, all by the time of our Centenary in 2021.

You can help us realise these bold and ambitious plans by making a secure online donation. Every contribution, however modest, makes a huge difference.

And, if you would like an even closer association with LCO, why not consider supporting us on a regular basis. Doing so not only gives you ‘behind-the-scenes’ access to the orchestra, it also helps us plan with confidence for the future.
