The LSO on Tour blog has hit the airwaves – Classic FM has interviewed our wordsmith Gareth for their daily podcast, and will feature more on the Japan tour in future podcasts. Listen, download or subscribe to it here: www.classicfm.co.uk/sectional.asp?id=17535
And while we’re on the subject of Gareth, you might want to pop on over to YouTube to check out the new YouTube Symphony Orchestra. The LSO is a major partner in this project, recording Tan Dun’s piece and recording video masterclasses. See what it’s all about here: www.youtube.com/symphony and watch Gareth’s flute masterclass here: uk.youtube.com/watch?v=uWkC7Aqztbo
The London Symphony Orchestra is one of the world's top orchestras. Our home is at the Barbican Centre in the City of London where we play over 80 concerts every year, but we also spend quite a bit of time out on the road, touring all over the world. Recently we have toured to Germany, France, Russia, New York, Japan, Holland, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and Lithuania; and coming up this year are China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Spain, Portugal, Florida, Romania and a return visit to New York, where we are resident at the Lincoln Center.

Thanks Jo, I’ve just got back from the last concert of the tour and I now have 4 hours sleep. People keep linking silly videos of me now on the youtube…I was enjoying the fact that I was anonymous and now…oh dear.
Maybe I’ll put a fitness video out for next Christmas.
Enjoy the last blog. See you in London Town
Ah, sorry Gareth, all in the name of publicity and the lovely lovely circular web traffic. You’re a star you know, perhaps you should have more strops and demand only yellow M&Ms in your own personal dressing room on the next tour. Just don’t make me be the one to ask Sue for it …
I think everyone will join me in saying thanks for this Japan blog. We’re pushing 20000 views now, and you broke the all-time day record as well.
Safe journey home, see you at the Barbi on Sunday!
