This year’s Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition takes place from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 September at LSO St Luke’s and the Barbican Hall.
From nearly 200 entries, 20 candidates have been selected to take part in the two days of preliminary rounds, with three finalists going forward to the Final Concert at the Barbican Hall on Sunday.
Throughout the preliminary rounds, which are not open to the public, the writer Toby Deller will be our eyes and ears on the ground, blogging about the comings and goings, highs and lows, trials and tribulations, backstage gossip and on-stage triumphs. He’ll be posting at frequent intervals throughout the three days, and will also be tweeting some thoughts – follow the hashtag #DFCC for all the latest.
Please do join us for the live Final Concert at the Barbican on 30 September – tickets are available from the LSO website.
