The orchestra will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 from memory on Monday 7 September at an outdoor concert in London’s Kings Cross, under the West Handyside Canopy. An audience will be invited, adhering to social distancing guidelines.

It’s not the first time the orchestra has played a full symphony from memory: it has become something of a calling card for the Aurora since 2014, when it became the first professional orchestra in the modern era to do so.
