The musicians of the City of London Sinfonia's response to self-isolation has been to set up a regular streamed event, Comfortably Classical at Home on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11.30am when one of the musicians hosts a short concert live from their homes − music for anyone and everyone, from young children to older adults. 

These are relaxed, casual events and at the first one on 26 March, Katherine (Principal Clarinet) performed Stravinsky in the sunshine in her garden, introducing listeners not only to the chalumeau, a predecessor of the clarinet, but also her chickens.

Today's episode (Tuesday 31 March) is Joely Koos, Co-Principal Cello, with Alexandra Wood, Leader and Creative Director, and Daniel Bates, Principal Oboe, scheduled for next week.

The concerts are broadcast live on the orchestra's Facebook page where you can catch them afterwards too
