London Firebird Orchestra

10 Years and Counting

It’s ten years since the London Firebird Orchestra was formed on 20 March 2012. So join us as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary Season…

We have a terrific line up of no less than seven concerts to look forward to this season with some of your favourite concertos, symphonies, overtures and much more.

All the orchestral concerts in this season will be conducted by our much-loved conductors, Michael Thrift and George Jackson:

We are also very excited to welcome back wonderful soloists to perform with the Orchestra. These include  George Harliono, Emmanuel Bach, Jamal Aliyev and Yury Revich (pictured below), as well as featuring some of the finest upcoming stars for the first time.

We are also launching the first in a series of concerts entitled Firebird Chamber Platform Concerts. This will give a much needed opportunity for smaller scale ensembles to perform under the Firebird banner.
