This is the final concert in the Lent Term Lunchtime concert series. The series will restart at the beginning of the 2017-18 academic year in late September.

LSE’s Spring Concert, which will include performances by the LSE Choir and Orchestra takes place on 21 March in the beautiful surroundings of St Clement Danes. Don’t leave it too late to get your ticket!

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
