The London Sinfonietta is committed to providing opportunities for young people to experience the power of new music. We support secondary 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.
The London Sinfonietta’s Concert Club offers free tickets to secondary school groups to attend concerts across the season. Specially created pre-concert events will support students to deepen their understanding and enjoyment of the music and provide opportunities to learn more about the music industry, meet members of the London Sinfonietta, conductors, composers and backstage staff.
Our next Concert Club events will be;
Sound Across a Century Tuesday 24 March, 6pm
Musicians of Tomorrow Wednesday 8 July, 6.30pm
For more information and to book tickets to these events please contact Christine Andrews.
In collaboration with the music services in our partner boroughs of Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest, we programme an annual series of presented concerts which take place in school halls and are tailored specifically for secondary 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. Concerts are devised to compliment the aims of the National Curriculum objectives for Key Stage 3 and are usually delivered to full year groups.
For more information on our work with schools, and to find out how your school can get involved please email Christine Andrews.
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
