London Symphony to Partner with Rapid COVID-19 Test

This week, the London Symphony Orchestra announced its partnership with DNANudge, a company that will provide rapid COVID-19 testing for its orchestral musicians


In addition to testing for COVID-19, it has the capability to test for FluA, FluB, and respiratory syncytial virus.

“Music’s ability to connect and inspire people has never been more needed, so it has been so truly wonderful for the orchestra to be able to gather together again – an experience that has been so much missed by our musicians and by our audiences. We are hugely excited about our remarkable upcoming programme, and we are immensely thankful to Professor Toumazou and the entire DnaNudge team for their part in getting this world-class orchestra back where it belongs – sharing the transformative power of incredible music,” LSO Music Director Sir Simon Rattle said.

“DnaNudge has been absolutely instrumental in our successful return to rehearsals and live performance, and we are thrilled to have been able to relaunch a programme of live performances for our audience," LSO Managing Director Kathryn McDowell said.
