London Sinfonietta in Enfield

London Sinfonietta:Fireworks
The London Sinfonietta is heading to Enfield for a residency at St Ignatius College, Enfield in May, marking the beginning of a longer-term relationship with the Enfield area which will build towards work with the wider community. 

From 22 to 25 May, London Sinfonietta musicians and staff, as well as the 2023 cohort of the London Sinfonietta Academy, will work alongside students of St Ignatius College in Enfield to offer the opportunity to compose, film and learn the inner workings of a professional ensemble. 

The ensemble is performing at the Southbank Centre on 25 May, presenting Fireworks, a programme of virtuosic pieces by Augusta Read Thomas, Dai Fujikura, Tania León, and György Ligeti. They will be rehearsing for the concert at St Ignatius College and students from the college will be invited to attend both rehearsals and the concert. 

The ensemble has an existing connection to the Borough since 2019, collaborating with Enfield Music Service to deliver Composition Challenge workshops in primary schools and involve their young instrumentalists in the Sound Out project and concert.

The London Sinfonietta Academy, the ensemble's annual programme that recruits young musicians across the UK to train as a Sinfonietta-sized ensemble, will also be involved in composition workshops during the residency.

Full details from the London Sinfonietta's website.
