At St John's Smith Square there will be a more intimate performance of Stravinsky's sacred music performed by Philharmonia Voices, conductor David Edwards. Partner collaborations include three concerts from the Royal College of Music, and a rush-hour concert from the Southbank Sinfonia, plus all five of the Philharmonia Orchestra's concerts will be broadcast by BBC Radio 3.
Things start on 15 May with Esa-Pekka Salonnen conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall and events continue until September.
