One of the UK’s leading chamber orchestras, City of London Sinfonia (CLS), was founded in 1971 by the late Richard Hickox and celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Led by Stephen Layton (Artistic Director & Principal Conductor) and Michael Collins (Principal Conductor), the Orchestra has earned a reputation for strong, distinctive programming, outstanding performances and recordings, and a passion for music featuring the voice.

Performing throughout the UK and abroad, CLS makes regular appearances at all the major London concert halls as well as St Paul’s Cathedral and other venues in the City of London. It has been resident orchestra at the capital’s popular Opera Holland Park since 2004 and holds a long-standing residency in High Wycombe, as well as being a regular guest at major UK festivals. In addition the Orchestra performs lively Crash, Bang, Wallop! family concerts and workshops offering young listeners a lively and interactive introduction to classical music.

Away from the concert hall, CLS musicians work creatively with schools and community projects through the acclaimed Meet the Music programme, with a particular focus on the field of health and wellbeing, including a long standing residency at Great Ormond Street Hospital. They also work innovatively with corporate businesses, offering creative approaches to professional skills training through the medium of music, with the groundbreaking Development through Music programme.
