The Young Leaders Orchestra, currently composed of 46 young musicians, will be led by Venezuelan conductors Félix Briceño from El Sistema and Juan Carlos Maggiorani from Orquestra Geração, and Rod Skipp from In Harmony Liverpool.

At 7:30pm on Friday 15 January, In Harmony Lambeth’s Holst Orchestra, The Nucleo Project Symphony Orchestra, and the Sistema London Orchestra (composed of young musicians from In Harmony Lambeth and The Nucleo Project) will perform in St John’s Church (Waterloo Rd, SE1 8TY) as a Southbank Centre fringe event.
