Join the London Sinfonietta online for a very special fundraising evening of live performances, conversations and films. An exciting and beautiful collection of chamber performances will be accompanied by a behind-the-scenes look at the ensemble's work in new music, in schools and the community and in programmes to support the best emerging talent for the future of new music in the UK.
Live-streamed from Kings Place near Kings Cross in London (where the organisation has its administrative home), the event will last a little over an hour and is presented by Jumoké Fashola, featuring players from the ensemble, as well as contributions from special guests in the world of new music.
The evening will raise important funds for the future of the London Sinfonietta as we build up to a return to more normal work as the pandemic in the UK recedes. Every ticket sold will contribute to the total raised – so thank you in advance for purchasing and do encourage your friends to join us too!
The evening will also include:
- live and filmed performances by members of the London Sinfonietta, including:
- Toru Takemitsu Rain Coming (premiere of a new performance film)
- Luciano Berio Duetti - haunting violin duets, featuring young musicians from the London Sinfonietta Academy programme
- Postcard Pieces - created in response to our Composition Challenges
- Sinfonietta Shorts - exciting short works performed by world-class musicians
- appearances and messages from special guests who have worked with the ensemble over the years
- the opportunity to bid on exclusive Silent Auction items, consisting of musical manuscripts, rare vinyl albums and a range of exciting experiences
- a Prize Draw where everyone who buys a ticket will be guaranteed a piece of musical history in our postcard series Hand Written (see below for examples)
In the coming weeks leading up to 10 June 2021 we will publish the full details of the programme for the evening and the Silent Auction items.
