Beethoven to fill St Paul's for Lord Mayor's charity

The sounds of Beethoven's epic ninth symphony will fill St Paul's this May, as the Lord Mayor of London continues his year of charity fundraising.

£10 / £20 / £30 / £40

The Symphony No.9 in D Minor (Op.125), also known as the Choral Symphony because of its famous Ode to Joy finale, will be performed under the dome on Thursday 23 May at 7pm (6pm doors).

Performed by the English Chamber Orchestra with Choir of the 21st Century and singers from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Drama, the symphony will be conducted by Howard Williams.

Soloists include Elizabeth Llewellyn, Sarah Connolly, Andrew Kennedy and Mark Stone.

The concert is part of the Lord Mayor's Appeal, an annual year-long drive to raise money for the incumbent Lord Mayor's chosen charities.

Current Lord Mayor, Roger Gifford, has chosen City Music Foundation, Future for Kids, Gifford Wood Appeal, The Harold Samuel Collection and the Lord Mayor's Scholarship Programme.
