On 7 April 2015 the Southbank Sinfonia will be performing with the National Youth Dance Company (with whom the sinfonia performed the Rite of Spring in 2013). At Sadlers Wells Theatre, the sinfonia will be in the pit playing Max Richter's Recomposed: The Four Seasons for a new dance work by Michael Keegan Dolan, In - nocentes

In a busy month for the Southbank Sinfonia, they will be popping up at the University of Westminster's Ambika P3 on 15 April, for Nonclassical: The Rise of the Machines a programme full of remarkable sounds which includes Alexander Mosolov's iconic Iron Foundry, plus music by Nonclassical founder Gabriel Prokofiev, Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra (fifth movement), and Concerto for Trumpet, Percussion, Turntables and Orchestra, with DJ Mr Switch and percussionist Joby Burgess.

Then on 21 April the Southbank Sinfonia's regular rush-hour slot at St John's Church, Waterloo, includes John Adams Chamber Symphony conducted by Holly Mathieson, plus music by Bryce Dessner and Osvaldo Golijov.
