London Philharmonic Orchestra (Symphony Orchestra)

Founded: 1932 - London, England

On October 7, 1932 an audience in the Queen's Hall, London was brought to its feet, some even standing on their seats to cheer. It was a telling debut for the London Philharmonic Orchestra (= LPO) which was founded by Sir Thomas Beecham from the players in the country with the intention that it should be THE London orchestra, a counterpart to the orchestras of Vienna and Berlin.

From the outset, The LPO has worked with world-renowned conductors including Sir Thomas Beecham, Sir Adrian Boult, Sir John Pritchard, Bernard Haitink, Franz Welser-Möst, Sir George Solti, Klaus Tennstedt, Roger Norrington and Many more. Harrison Birtwistle, one of the leading contemporary composers, is the orchestra's Composer in Residence.

In September 1992, the LPO was appointed Resident Symphony Orchestra at the South Bank Centre, performing in the Royal festival Hall in London. The LPO is unique amongst London orchestras in its 33 year summer residency at the Glyndebourne Festival Opera in Sussex.
