Blue Light Symphony Orchestra Concert at St John’s Smith Square
London, London SW1P 3HA

Entry type: BALLOT Seated Tickets Only Check venue website for T&C's Collection at box office (COBO)

A concert of classical music including Beethoven’s epic 5th Symphony, played by an orchestra of emergency workers. 

Founded by serving detective and Royal College of Music graduate Seb Valentine, the BLSO is a charity that improves the well-being of emergency workers through music. A unique ensemble, our players come from emergency services organisations across England and Wales. Our workshops offer musical respite from the day-to-day stresses and trauma experienced by first responders. Many of our players told us that without the BLSO, they would not be enjoying the proven health benefits of ensemble music-making.

Additionally, the BLSO is doing ground-breaking work in the field of music therapy. We are developing a bespoke program of group music therapy for emergency workers suffering from stress and emotional trauma-related problems such as disturbed sleep, low mood and anxiety. Our successful pilot project in 2021 with Police and Fire personnel in Surrey and Sussex has already inspired a similar project in Greater Manchester.

This is our first public concert which we hope will be attended by many from the emergency services community and those who support us. Our soloist, Schay Wickham, studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and was a Police Officer for a few years before returning to music professionally.
