Become a member of the

Hickox Circle

The Hickox Circle, named for our founder Richard Hickox, is our group of music-loving supporters who are deeply engaged in the work of City of London Sinfonia, enabling us to commission new work, deliver our concerts, and bring our incredible musicians into the community.

Get closer to the life of an orchestra and see the process of new work as it develops from an initial idea to the first performance – with access to rehearsals and exclusive insights from the creative team throughout the process.

Please contact us at development[at] about getting involved.

If your interest is in supporting our participation work specifically, we are happy to work with you to find a suitable programme of involvement, please contact us to discuss options.
