The London Chamber Orchestra, pictured above, is celebrating its 100th year with a concert at Cadogan Hall.
The concert, on October 26, will open the orchestra’s 2021-2022 season, conducted by music director Christopher Warren-Green.
The LCO are set to play Saffron by the orchestra’s composer-in-residence, Freya Waley-Cohen.
She describes her work as “a piece that plays with simultaneity and patchworks of juxtapositions, filled with a sort of reckless joy and little flecks of anger.”
She said: “I hear it as being full of bright reds, yellows and oranges, the colours of saffron.”
Next will be a presentation on LCO’s education programme, Music Junction, from the orchestra’s education and outreach artistic director, Rosemary Warren-Green, alongside percussionist and workshop leader, Beth Higham-Edwards.
