Founded by Anthony Bernard in 1921, the London Chamber Orchestra is the UK’s longest standing professional chamber orchestra and will be celebrating the remarkable achievement of reaching its centenary across both 20-21 and 21-22 seasons.

Throughout its 100 years, LCO has enjoyed many successes and become one of the UK’s most compelling and inclusive musical organisations.
