Overview

Founded in 1921, the LCO is the UK’s oldest professional chamber orchestra. The orchestra’s members, drawn from the ranks of London’s leading symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles, come together to be a part of the collaborative musical culture which Principal Conductor and Music Director Christopher Warren-Green has shaped over his many years with the orchestra.

In October 2013 the LCO asked HarrisonParrott to assume interim management of the orchestra, working with existing stakeholders to develop its artistic and commercial vision.

Over the last year HarrisonParrott has helped the LCO deliver:

  • A new mission and vision
  • A five-year business plan focused on developing the long-term financial stability of the orchestra
  • A rebrand of the LCO, including the launch of a new website and a campaign centred around peer-to-peer marketing
  • The management of a major fundraising event in St James's Palace, along with a major grant for the orchestra's education and outreach programme
  • The launch of a new-look 2014/15 season
  • The recruitment of new members of the operational team and a new Chairman of the LCO Trust
