Retrospect – July in Pictures

Posted on: July 31, 2012 in: Month in Pictures

Another month has flown by at City of London Sinfonia. During July we had many more performances at Opera Holland Park, as well as two family day concerts in Newmarket and Whitechapel, a performance with Michael Collins at Petworth Festival and a chamber lunchtime concert at St Thomas’ Hospital.

The highlight of our month was undoubtedly welcoming the Olympic Torch to Holland Park with our friends from Opera Holland Park. We look forward to August when we’ll be taking part in the Paralympic Flame Celebrations in Suffolk.


Here’s a few pictures from the past month…
