It is a chance to train with and learn from one of the world’s leading contemporary music ensembles, coached by our Principal Players.

I have learned so much about my instrument and my own potential, it has been an incredible experience Nina Harries, London Sinfonietta Academy Participant, 2017


The London Sinfonietta Academy was a really invaluable experience. It was the starting point of a working relationship that remains central to my career. The opportunity for emerging musicians to work alongside professional performers is essential, not only in terms of raising their aspirations, but the impact that it has on their musical and performance skills.
