This season the London Mozart Players will be donating all of the profits in two of their concert series to the Royal British Legion, raising funds for those who are serving or have served in the British Armed Forces. The partnership forms part of the London Mozart Players' Harmony in Conflict initiative, which includes projects across the country bringing communities together through music.

The two concert series involved are Mozart Explored / Beethoven Explored and Mozart Explored: 1783, both at St John's Smith Square. Mozart and Beethoven Explored is an 11-part lunchtime concert series (October 2015 - April 2016) in which pianist Howard Shelley and the London Mozart Players look at the piano concertos by Mozart and Beethoven, with Shelley providing introductions which look at the stories behind the music. Mozart Explored: 1783 is a series of four evening concerts (November 2015 - May 2016) in which conductors Graham Ross and Gerard Korsten are joined by soloists Janina Fialkowska, Peter Francomb & the orchestra's Young Artist in Residence, Laura van der Heijden to perform works from Mozart's prolific year 1783. The series also includes the UK premiere of Stephen Oliver's completion of Mozart's opera The Goose of Cairo, conducted by David Parry.

Mozart Explored starts on Wednesday 7 October 2015 with Piano Concerto No. 19 in F K459, whilst Mozart Explored:1783 opens on 26 November with works written for his wife and her sister (Constanza and Aloysia Weber) including concert arias and the Mass in C minor.
