The London Philharmonic Orchestra's Conducting Fellowship is open for applications for a new season, whilst the orchestra has launched its LPO Under 30s scheme offering seats for less for those under 30.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra has opened applications for its Conducting Fellowship 2024/25. Now in its second year, the fellowship has been specifically created to promote diversity and inclusivity in the classical music industry by developing two outstanding early-career conductors from backgrounds currently under-represented in the profession. 

The inaugural Fellow Conductors, Luis Castillo-Briceño and Charlotte Politi, were selected from around 200 applications from around the world, and are working with the Orchestra during its 2023/24 season. The two successful new applicants will be Fellow Conductors for the 2024/25 season and be guided by the LPO’s Principal Conductor, Edward Gardner. They will become fully immersed in the life of the LPO, working intensively with the Orchestra over a period of 6–8 non-consecutive weeks.

Further information from the LPO's website.

The orchestra also recently launched LPO Under 30s which offers anyone aged 30 and under the chance to experience the magic of live orchestral music from some of the best seats in the house for less. Offers will vary each month but participants will never pay more than £20 per ticket and there is no booking fee for LPO Under 30s. There will also be drinks offers at selected concerts, and behind the scenes peeks, plus a free LPO tote bag when you book your first ticket.
