London Schools Symphony Orchestra celebrates it's 70th anniversary

London Schools Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year and is appealing for its former players and alumni to get back in touch so they can get involved with the special show they have in store. 

Founded in 1951 it's considered one of the finest youth orchestras in the world with all the talent sourced locally, they hand pick their players from schools across the capital.

James Dickman has been speaking to it's artistic director Peter Ash about the LSSO's special concert at the Barbican.
