If you have not already done so, why not join the many supporters of the LMO and have your name included on the Orchestra's e-mailing list? We won't bombard you with literature but we will keep you informed about the Orchestra's activity.
It’s a season of variety in venue and repertoire - from Woolfenden to Handel; from Synagogue to Cathedral.. A chance to experience the music composed in three different centuries in four concerts plus the bonus of a Mozart Requiem!
Guy Woolfenden was the longest-serving music director the LMO has had. For more than 20 years Guy made the journey from Banbury to Merseyside for rehearsals and concerts - barely imaginable on today’s M6! At the same time he was the director of music for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Sadly, Guy died last year and as he was known particularly for his writing for wind instruments we have included his clarinet concerto in November in a concert dedicated to his memory. That concert takes place in the magnificent setting of the Grade 1 Princes Road Synagogue just a few days after we perform Mozart’s Requiem at the Metropolitan cathedral with the choirs of both that cathedral and Westminster.
After that it’s back to the Hope University Creative Campus for two concerts in the Conerstone and one at the Capstone for music as diverse as that of Barber, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Mendelssohn and Haydn. From Barber’s famous Adagio to Tchaikovsky’s equally famous piano concerto there is mood tempo and style for every taste.

LMO does Brexit!
Yes, you read correctly. Many members of the LMO do things completely different from playing their instrument in their working lives, and our Librarian, violinist/viola player Michael Dougan, just happens also to be Professor of European Law and Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law at Liverpool University. Which made him very well placed to comment on legal aspects of the UK’s recent EU referendum.
