#ConcertLab

Step into our musical laboratory and help explore the future.

To thrive as it should, classical music needs to be daring. Where other artforms have embraced change and unlocked whole worlds of opportunity, a typical concert experience today remains the same as 200 years ago. What are we missing out on?

After a first series in 2017, #ConcertLab returns this year to ask more questions of classical music's presentation, experimenting with lighting, layout and our very senses to bring fresh resonance to orchestral performance.

In concerts at St John's Waterloo, plus an encounter in the pioneering Bridge Theatre, #ConcertLab harnesses the ideas of young orchestral musicians and combines them with the imagination, philosophy and technologies that fuels the greatest art of today.
