For the first time since 13 March 2020, the players of London Mozart Players (LMP) will be performing together on Monday 15 June 2020. The concert, possibly the first concert by a UK chamber orchestra since lockdown, will be performed under strict social distancing rules with no audience and will be streamed live, and free to view, on Classic FM's Facebook Page. It is the first of three LMP Live! concerts to be given over the Summer months, which take advantage of the unusual conditions in which the concerts take place to give the performances in unusual locations.

All three concerts take place at 7pm, and will be directed by LMP co-leaders Simon Blendis and Ruth Rogers. On Monday 15 June, LMP will be performing from Westfield London, in Shepherd's Bush, on the first day of trading, and the programme will include music by Mozart, Elgar and Tchaikovsky. On Saturday 4 July, LMP will be at St Giles Cripplegate, celebrating the re-opening of churches to congregations, playing Grieg's Holberg Suite, Copeland's Hoedown, with RVW's The Lark Ascending giving us a chance to hear violinist Tamsin Little live before she retires later this year. Then on 22 July at Mansfield College, the last official day of home-schooling, the orchestra will be joined by violinist Jennifer Pike for Vivaldi's The Four Seasons.

All the concerts are available via Classic FM's Facebook page; full details from LMP's website.
