Southbank Sinfonia


Southbank Sinfonia brings together 33 outstanding graduates from all over the world each year to prepare them for a role as young advocates for Classical music, communicating its power and worth in the 21st century.

It works in partnership with leading organisations such as the Royal Opera House, Academy of St Martin in the Fields and National Theatre, enabling its players to take their music beyond the usual strongholds of classical music and connect with wider audiences.

Our support goes towards a tailored programme of coaching to increase the musicians’ staging and presentation skills. This learning supports their Rush Hour concert series at St Johns Waterloo in 2017, where the musicians have autonomy over how it the work is programmed and performed. It contributes towards the players confidence and creativity at a crucial point of their development.
