City of London Sinfonia is grateful for support from trusts, foundations and statutory bodies which enable us the Orchestra to perform moving and inspiring music on the concert stage and in the community.

Your support would help us with the following activities:

  • New music commissions such as our 2018 autumn programme, Bach and the Cosmos, which explored the intrinsic links between music and maths
  • Our Wellbeing programme which brings high-quality music workshops and performances to children in hospitals, people in hospices, and older people in care homes to help improve health and wellbeing
  • Our life-enhancing Education programme which brings music education to children in schools in Tower Hamlets and Harrow
  • Our accessible ticket and 5IVER scheme which enables discounted tickets for 16-25-year-olds and students, to allow a younger generation the opportunity to enjoy our musical performances
  • Pioneering performance projects such as our ‘seriously informal’, own-promoted concert series

Our Grants in Action

We are incredibly grateful for funding from Trusts and Foundations for the projects they support:

Bach and the Cosmos concert series, classical music in a contemporary setting

In 2018-19, M&G Investments and the Boris Karloff Charitable Foundation are supporting us, so we can reduce ticket prices and make it easier for young people (aged 16-25 and students) to attend our concerts in contemporary venues, helping us cultivate young people's interest in classical music.

Music for Children

The Barbara Ward Children's Foundation is helping us bring music into the lives of children in hospital, with interactive music-making and educational concerts, so that no one is excluded from experiencing the positive, healing benefits of making music.

Care Home Project

The Dunhill Medical Trust and the Linbury Trust enables us to perform concerts in North London care homes and interact with residents, many of whom live with dementia, to enhance their wellbeing and allow them to engage with the transformative power of music.

All of our work in health and wellbeing settings is underpinned by the MariaMarina Foundation, who believe in our ability to make classical music more accessible to children and adults in hospitals, hospices and care homes across London.
