Gianandrea Noseda.

The NYBBGB musicians will also have the opportunity to attend the LSO Discovery Day at LSO St. Luke’s, when the composer, Sir James Macmillan will discuss the inspiration for his new music with LSO Managing Director, Kathryn McDowell.The concert takes place on Sunday 4th November starting at 7.00pm at The Barbican Concert Hall, London.
