Conservatoire Partnerships

We work with composition and instrumental students from conservatoires across the UK, providing opportunities for emerging musicians to learn directly from London Sinfonietta professionals via workshops, coaching sessions and performances.

Royal Academy of Music Manson Ensemble

We regularly perform side-by-side with the Royal Academy of Music Manson Ensemble. By definition, ‘sinfonietta’ means ‘small symphony orchestra’. But we periodically expand into a symphonic force to be reckoned with, performing works for larger ensemble side-by-side with the Royal Academy of Music students. 

The London Sinfonietta and Royal Academy of Music’s Manson Ensemble pulled off a remarkable feat of ensemble precision and sheer virtuoso performing skills.

In partnership with Music Theatre Wales, new pieces by student composers from the Royal Northern College of Music are workshopped and performed by London Sinfonietta musicians.

Repertoire-based coaching

Taking inspiration from some of the repertoire performed by the London Sinfonietta, in London and across the UK, our players coach student ensembles on iconic, rarely performed or newly commissioned works. For example, students from the Royal College of Music and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama tackled Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians during our national tour of this seminal work in 2019.


London Sinfonietta musicians periodically provide coaching on specialist contemporary instrumental techniques at several UK conservatoires.
