London Sinfonietta Academy
Training the musicians of tomorrow

The London Sinfonietta Academy is an unparalleled opportunity for emerging performers and conductors to train with the world's leading contemporary music ensemble. It is an intensive week-long course of rehearsals, masterclasses and networking opportunities culminating in a public performance. This course provides experience and training in performing as part of a contemporary music ensemble, with coaching from the London Sinfonietta Principal Players and the potential for further performance opportunities in the following season. 

The seventh edition takes place from Monday 6 - Sunday 12 July 2015. Tickets for the public performance at LSO St Luke's on Saturday 11 July 2015 are free but advance booking is essential: click here.

The Academy is also a foremost route in our Emerging Artists Programme, an opportunity for the next generation of exceptional contemporary classical musicians to get involved in the working life of the ensemble. Click here to see our current Emerging Artists.
