Online event series



First time I have attended a world premiere from my living room. What a treat. Live-stream audience member

Thank you for tuning into Lockdown Live, our series of live digital content especially for the period of the Coronavirus lockdown. Over nine weeks, Lockdown Live included concerts and performance guides given by London Sinfonietta Principal Players, as well as composition challenges aimed at young people.

In this uncertain time, the London Sinfonietta is excited to continue to produce inspiring live events and to support musicians and composers in the production of new music. We hope you enjoyed it.

Have a look at all the Lockdown Live events here.

Sinfonietta Shorts

The first of these new series was Sinfonietta Shorts Live, in which short five-minute solo works were performed, followed by discussions with the composers and performer. The weekly series featured a range of composers that work closely with the ensemble and our principal players, bringing snippets of brilliant new music straight to your living room.

Postcard Pieces

We also have Postcard Pieces - a call out to creators of music and art! Over the past few weeks we've been collecting your submissions of Postcard Pieces. Our principal players then chose a selection to interpret and perform live every Friday. You can watch the past showcases on the Channel, and see the whole range of submissions here! Although this series is finished for now, why not have a go at creating your own? 

Introduction to contemporary cello

Our Introduction to Contemporary Instruments were an opportunity to find out more about the unusual demands 21st century music can make on the instrument and the performer. Join us with a London Sinfonietta principal player to dive into the nuances of contemporary performance.
