Side by side - young instrumentalists working alongside the City of London Sinfonia

Orchestras Live's Side by Side project in Northamptonshire involved 140 early stage instrumentalists performing alongside members of the City of London Sinfonia. The young performers are not experienced instrumentalists, but are young people from the county music service's Saturday schools, at the start of their instrumental journey.

For this Ten Pieces inspired project, students took part in composition workshops with John K Miles, resulting in the creation of a brand new piece, The Metronome, that was performed by the young musicians side by side with City of London Sinfonia players at a concert on 3 February 2018.

  1. Dear Robert, thank you for shining a light on this commission. Such a pleasure (as always) to work with the brilliant City of London Sinfonia, alongside some fantastic young people at the beginning of their musical journey. Also wonderful to have such clear and solid musical pathways in place for participants post project through the music hub NMPAT in Northamptonshire. John. www.johnkmiles.com
