About the event

One of the UK’s leading chamber orchestras, City of London Sinfonia was founded in 1971 by the late Richard Hickox. Led by Stephen Layton (Artistic Director & Principal Conductor) and Michael Collins (Principal Conductor), the Orchestra has earned a reputation for strong, distinctive programming, outstanding performances and recordings, and a passion for music featuring the voice.

Performing throughout the UK and abroad, the Orchestra makes regular appearances at all the major London concert halls as well as St Paul’s Cathedral and other venues in the City of London. It has been resident orchestra at the capital’s popular Opera Holland Park since 2004, as well as being a regular guest at major UK festivals. In addition, the Orchestra performs lively Crash, Bang, Wallop! family concerts and workshops, offering young listeners an interactive introduction to classical music.

Away from the concert hall, orchestra musicians work collaborativelyand creatively with schools and community projects through the acclaimed Meet the Music programme, with a particular focus on the field of health and wellbeing, including a long standing residency at Great Ormond Street Hospital. They also work innovatively with corporate businesses, offering creative approaches to professional skills training through the medium of music, with the ground-breaking Development through Music programme.

We are delighted to welcome them back to perform for us today.
