City of London Sinfonia

Music that celebrates humanity with wonder and joy

City of London Sinfonia (CLS) is a chamber orchestra. We believe that music - making it, sharing it, enjoying it - can change a person’s relationship to the world around them. We explore ideas, emotions, and what it means to be human through the music we commission and play. We find joy in what we do. We think about the people and the places we encounter. We seek wonder wherever we go. We hope to create moments of magic through shared experience, wherever we go, for whoever we meet along the way.
