London Gala Orchestra

The London Gala Orchestra (LGO) was formed at the request of the then management of the English National Opera Company to accompany international ballet companies visiting London. It was soon also playing at the Sadlers Wells Theatre and touring with the Bolshoi and Moscow Ballets.

As a result of this success it was invited by major choral societies (Royal Choral, London Welsh and the Malcolm Sargent) to accompany them at London’s Royal Albert and Royal Festival Halls. It was also a regular guest at the E.R.M.A. children’s concerts on the South Bank and the Arthur Davison family concerts at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon - an association which still continues today. Then followed gala concerts at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, and performances in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Edward. The LGO is proud to have worked with many artists from the classical music world including Sir Thomas Allen, Josephine Barstow, Sarah Chang, Robert Cohen, John Lill, Willard White, Chloë Hanslip, Benjamin Grosvenor, Alison Buchanan and Placido Domingo.

For many years the LGO has presented its own series of New Year concerts and during the summer months it is in demand for open-air concerts. Last summer the orchestra performed a total of 15 concerts. Artists performing with the LGO during these concerts included Aled Jones, Russell Watson, Hayley Westenra, Paul Potts, and the crossover groups G4, All Angels, Opera Babes, Blake and Teatro.

With over 30 concerts a year, the London Gala Orchestra is now one of the busiest of its type in the country.
