We're on our way to Dijon today. Anyone who has been following the LSO for a long time might recall an incident during a previous trip to this fine city. Here's an excerpt from Principal Flute Gareth Davies' book The Show Must Go On:

"It was way back in, ooh, 2008 when we set out for our first ever trip to Dijon. We had been working the night before and all the instruments were on the van...

A foggy day in London Town
Had me low and had me down
I viewed the morning with alarm
The British Museum had lost its charm
How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed,
For, suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London Town
The sun was shining everywhere.
(Ira Gershwin)

OK, we're in Watford, but the sentiment stands

The picture on the right shows the Northern Ireland Young Musician of the Year competition, with Barry standing at the back and Claire seated in front – and on the left of the picture, our very own Managing...

A smashing LSO debut for Thomas Søndergård last night. And The Arts Desk agrees. "Søndergård clearly has the measure of all three works, and all came off well, making this concert, his first appearance with the London Symphony, was an impressive debut." [ Bit.ly Link ]

Same again tonight Maestro?
