The London Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to the Queen
Her Majesty had been the Patron of one of the world’s leading orchestras since her accession to the throne 70 years ago.

Her Majesty had been the Patron of one of the world’s leading orchestras since her accession to the throne 70 years ago. Conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, the LSO shared a video of their rendition of ‘God Save the Queen’, with the orchestra standing up to perform, and wearing concert blacks. In a caption to their video, the LSO wrote: “The London Symphony Orchestra is deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.” The Orchestra is privileged to have hosted Her Majesty at many of its concerts and events – from opening the Barbican Centre in 1982, to hosting a gala at Buckingham Palace in 2015. The Queen was present at some of the most significant moments in our history and was a loyal and committed supporter of the orchestra throughout her reign.
