Come to a Concert

The London Sinfonietta is committed to providing opportunities for young people to experience the power of new music. We support school students to learn about, and be inspired by contemporary classical music by offering free and discounted tickets to experience the London Sinfonietta live in concert and hearing the ensemble perform in specially devised concerts in schools. 

Sound Out Schools Concert

Our annual Sound Out Schools Concert provides an interactive, whistlestop tour of new music and composition and features performances of selected Composition Challenge pieces created by young people from across the UK. Join us live at the Southbank Centre or enjoy the experience from the comfort of the classroom with our online event!

In-school Concerts

In collaboration with the music services in our partner boroughs across England, we programme an annual series of presented concerts which take place in school halls and are tailored specifically for the students. Typically, these concerts will feature a small ensemble and focus on specific aspects contemporary music and composition techniques, with music by key figures of the late twentieth and twenty-first century being performed alongside new compositions written by students as part of our Composition Challenges project. 

"The response to the concert was overwhelmingly positive…crucially pupils were exposed to high quality music making and supported to create unique musical pieces." Rachael Adediran, Head of Music, Skinners Academy
