As the city is brought into the concert hall, Southbank Sinfonia’s energetic musicians will be your guides for an orchestral tour of London’s most musical houses – and the scores that were created within. From the Belgravia terrace in which Mozart composed his First Symphony to the Marylebone flat where Jimi Hendrix worked on ‘Purple Haze’, London’s buildings have housed countless musical revolutions. Explore an exhilaratingly eclectic catalogue of music written in the capital over the past four centuries, accompanied by specially created projections that link each piece back to the very building their composer lived and worked in.

‘Absolutely blown away. An unexpected evening, captivating storytelling, bite-size classical music – totally magical.’

‘Innovative, welcoming and pretty spectacular!’
