Alumni - where are you now?

As many people will know, 2018 marked 70 years since the music service and LSSO were founded by Eric Pinkett. As part of the planned celebrations for our 70th year, an LSSO Reunion Event took place on Saturday 24th March at Wigston College, Leicester. (formerly Guthlaxton College).

The event was a resounding success and more than 150 ex-LSSO musicians attended to both celebrate the anniversary and to see old friends. Many of the attendees brought their instruments and performed together at the end of the day - and they still sound great as you can hear from the clip below!

Since we started up in 1948 we've supported and nurtured the music making of tens of thousands of talented young musicians from in and around Leicester and Leicestershire and we're really keen to reconnect with as many of you as possible.

What were the highlights of your time with us? Where has your musical journey taken you? Maybe you're performing professionally, perhaps you're involved in the music industry in other ways – or are you continuing to make music alongside life in another profession? Whatever your story it would be great to hear from you and your time with us - and perhaps even feature your adventures in our termly newsletter!

Get in touch - - We look forward to hearing from you!
