At its core, the LSO’s mission is to bring the greatest music to the greatest number of people whilst sustaining our musicians and the artistic excellence that they bring to the stage. The pandemic has been a hugely challenging time for the LSO and other charitable arts organisations, but the outpouring of support from audiences both in the UK and across the world has given us great optimism for the future. Every single donation we receive will support our mission and enable us to keep bringing the joy of music to millions, in person, and via digital means. 

Through the Appeal, we hope to sustain the four main aspects of our work at the LSO:

#AlwaysPlaying - keep the LSO performing together on stage

#AlwaysDigital - help the LSO reach more people digitally 

#AlwaysLearning - help provide vital music education for communities and the next generation of young musicians 

#AlwaysStriving - enable the LSO to embrace the opportunities offered by a changing world




The LSO Always Playing Appeal is being run by London Symphony Orchestra to support the LSO Recovery Appeal Fund being held by the LSO Endowment Trust (registered charity number 233700). This is an unrestricted fund to be used to make grants to the London Symphony Orchestra Ltd (registered charity number 232391) at the discretion of the Trustees of the LSO Endowment Trust with the primary focus being to sustain the London Symphony Orchestra’s activities and support a new business model in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
