City of London Sinfonia (CLS) was selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2016, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. In 2015, this campaign raised over £7.2 million for participating charities and is a fantastic opportunity to raise money and build awareness of CLS's work in the community.

CLS is proud to announce that the Big Give has helped us exceed our goal of £20,000 but achieve 118% of our target, with a grand total of £23,742 in donations made towards our Tower Hamlets Children's Music Project. This is a testament to the positive impact that CLS makes in the community. We are so grateful to the many donors who have invested in the power of music to transform lives, and will be specifically helping CLS make a difference in the lives of young children in Tower Hamlets.


What project did we raise money for?

We raised money for our Key Stage 1 music project which brings exceptional music making activities to hundreds of 5-7 year old children in Tower Hamlets, one of the most deprived Boroughs in the country. Read about the project that 46 donors have helped to make happen: the Tower Hamlets Children's Music Project.

City of London Sinfonia brings the world of orchestral music to disadvantaged young children, older adults and isolated individuals in the UK. Donations enable us to offer access to high quality live music in a fun and interactive way through a series of workshops and performances in a year-round programme of activities and projects.
