This season, we launch the first ever LS Open; a new music festival made by the public. Joining forces with CoMA (Contemporary Music for All), the festival features commissions that place public participation at its heart.
CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FOR ALL
Saturday 3 March 2018 at 7.30pm, St Leonard’s, Spitalfields
New music should be for everyone – whether that’s listening or performing. Contemporary Music for All’s second weekend festival of public participation takes place all around the UK and abroad. Join us in London for an evening concert celebrating open creativity, as our players are joined on stage by CoMA participants.
Players from CoMA London
Full details to be announced
We celebrate the tradition of music education that is so much part of the ensemble’s history with this series of projects. Primary school groups from across London will be making new music with the London Sinfonietta, producing inspiring ideas for composition and creative sounds. In our 50th Anniversary Schools Concert, a specially formed ensemble of teenage players from Haringey and Enfield will be joining London Sinfonietta musicians on stage to perform new music composed by their primary school peers.

RSVP: POSTCARD PIECES
Wherever you are in the world, we’d love you to send us a postcard for our 50th anniversary, with a musical composition on the back. Inspired by James Tenney’s Postcard Pieces, we’re looking for music in all its forms – whether you want to notate something, send us a graphic score, or a set of instructions. The only limitation is that it must fit on the back of a postcard. A selection of the best submissions will be performed by the London Sinfonietta.
Details on how to enter will be announced soon.
