A new year has begun, so it's time to reset, revitalise, and perhaps set a resolution or two. We've picked out five ideas for a New Year's resolution in 2022 - and of course, they are all ways in which you can get involved with the London Sinfonietta's work!
1. Take steps to live a greener life
Now more than ever, climate change is a big talking point across the globe. Everyone can play a role - big or small - in addressing the global climate crisis, and we've used our platform to actively respond to this significant challenge.
From Tansy Davies' Cave to Matthew Herbert's more more more, we've produced work that engages with the subjects of climate, waste and biodiversity.Explore our channel
2. Discover some new music at your next concert
If you're looking for a new experience at the concert hall, look no further than our live concerts in 2022.
