About the LCCO - we are a unique orchestra, which has the role of playing music by developing composers and giving them feedback. We were heard on BBC Radio 3 as part of Making Music's Play to the Nation, and the composer of a piece workshopped and recorded by us won the Making Music category in the British Composers Awards in 2008.
