once complete, the centre for music will contain a world-class concert hall, education, training and digital spaces, facilities for audiences and performers, and significant supporting commercial areas. the venue will form a welcoming place of participation, discovery and learning fit for the digital age. additionally, the centre would be a permanent home to the london symphony orchestra.
