Why support us?

London Sinfonietta is the UK’s flagship new music ensemble.

Our mission is to place the best contemporary classical music at the heart of today’s culture, engaging and challenging the public through inspiring performances of the highest standard, and taking risks to develop pioneering new work.

Box Office income accounts for only around a third of our annual income; a third is our valued contribution from Arts Council England as one of their National Portfolio Organisations; meaning the final third must be raised through the generous support of our Pioneers and Entrepreneurs, Trusts and Foundations, and corporate partners.

With your help, we can continue to lead the way, sparking the greatest innovations in music and nurturing the best musical talent.

Your donations help us to:

  • Commission new work – our commitment to new music has seen us commission over 350 works, and premiere many hundreds more
  • Support young composers – our Blue Touch Paper and Writing the Future schemes provide a platform to enable young and emerging composers to make work in new ways
  • Train the musicians of tomorrow our London Sinfonietta Academy provides a world-class training opportunity for young musicians
  • Inspire young people with the music of today – our schools projects provide a range of opportunities for primary and secondary pupils to learn about and be inspired by new music

Help us continue leading the way and find a way to get involved in the life of the London Sinfonietta that excites you.
