LSO Discovery brings music into the lives of 60,000 Londoners every year, and the annual summer celebration concert takes just a small slice of these participants and brings them together on the Barbican stage. Conductor Kristjan Järvi directs the LSO in an evening which begins with River Journey, a work commissioned by John Stephens OBE especially to be performed with children from three primary schools close to LSO St Luke's led by animateur Neil Valentine. East London's most gifted young musicians then perform in a new piece they have written with Howard Moody - Terrors of Red Flame.
