A Joint Audience Development Partnership between London Mozart Players and Naxos for Education

London Mozart Players (LMP) are proud to become an Ambassador of Naxos for Education as part of a joint Audience Development Partnership from the season of 2022–2023 onwards. Building on the long-standing relationship LMP has with Naxos over many acclaimed recordings in the past, this initiative demonstrates their shared goal of bringing the finest classical music to the community, both live in a concert hall and through recordings.

Through the recurring Keep Calm and Listen On campaign, LMP is excited to spread the word about free access to Naxos Music Library (NML) via a number of public libraries in London’s boroughs, for any library member. With an unrivalled breadth of classical music recordings from close to 1,000 major and independent labels including all of LMP’s, NML can be streamed on demand and on-the-go via the dedicated app.

Furthermore, students and schools working with LMP ‘s outreach programmes will be given complimentary access to Naxos MusicBox – a beautifully curated online resource for children aged 4-14 for their own exploration and discovery of musical treasures, as they whet their musical appetite before hearing the orchestra live!

Whether you enjoy classical music live or recorded, keep calm, and listen on!

London Mozart Players

Don’t let our name mislead you – we don’t just play in London, and we certainly don’t just play Mozart! As well as our residencies at Fairfield Halls in Croydon, St John the Evangelist in Upper Norwood, and Opus Theatre in Hastings, we’re well known internationally for working with many of the world’s greatest conductors and soloists. We’re proud to have developed a reputation for making and playing adventurous, ambitious and accessible music, and for being at the forefront of embedding arts and culture into the life of local communities across the UK and beyond.

After celebrating our 70th birthday in 2019, we soon found ourselves navigating orchestra life during the pandemic. During that time, we created an award-winning digital concert series which reached millions of people – reaffirming our commitment to our audiences.

We’ll be opening the launch event for Croydon’s Borough of Culture in 2023, as well as continuing to host our own concerts and events throughout the next year.

Naxos for Education is a brand-new portal for educators and practitioners, students and music lovers alike to access free resources and information about the wealth of Naxos’ offering. At Naxos, we believe in the power of music and words in enriching and deepening our understanding of humanity, art and culture.
