The funds raised from the Lord Mayor’s Appeal will support LSO Discovery programme, St Paul’s Music Outreach and Music in Hospitals, enabling them to continue their valuable work into the future.

Help the arts and education to inspire our children, to understand our past and show us how we can shape our future.

The London Symphony Orchestra

“The LSO has more than 25 years’ experience of engaging young people in music-making activities that show at first-hand the significant and potentially life-changing difference that music can have on people’s lives.

The funds raised by the Lord Mayor’s Appeal will be invaluable in ensuring that the LSO can continue to develop these transformative opportunities for young people, which help to improve the lives of future generations.”

Kathryn McDowell CBE DL, Managing Director,
London Symphony Orchestra

St. Pauls Cathedral

“St Paul’s Cathedral has a long-standing relationship with the Lord Mayor of London, and we are so pleased to be able to share in a common vision to educate, support, and inspire young people through the music of the Cathedral Church.

Whether it is through visits to schools, musical trips to the Cathedral, or the weekly rehearsals of the Hackney Children’s Choir, we are committed to encouraging young people to discover the joy and delight of music.”

The Revered Canon Michael Hampel
Precentor, St Paul’s Cathedral

Music in Hospitals

“Music in Hospitals brings the therapeutic benefits of live music to vulnerable adults and children with physical and mental illness, disability and frailty.

I am absolutely delighted that we have been included in The Lord Mayor’s Appeal this year; this will allow us to continue to bring the joy of live music to those who most need it in London and the South East.”

Steve Rowland-Jones, Chief Executive, 
Music in Hospitals England & Wales
