The London Sinfonietta Junior Academy supports musicians aged eighteen and under to perform music from the 20th and 21st centuries and to create original work.
Music service Partnerships
A strong partnership exists between the London Sinfonietta and the music services of Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest, working with young musicians in coaching and performance projects. A youth orchestra combining the forces of all three boroughs is brought together annually to perform a brand new piece of music side-by-side with London Sinfonietta musicians at the Southbank Centre in our annual concert for primary schools.
Outside London, we’ve recently partnered with young musicians from the West of England Youth Orchestra and the Southampton Music Hub to focus on minimalism, learning and performing the iconic In C by Terry Riley.
Launching in 2020, and generously funded by the Leverhulme Foundation, Leverhulme Performers will offer talented young musicians from London and elsewhere in the UK an opportunity to work intensively with London Sinfonietta professionals to learn and perform a key piece of contemporary repertoire.
