Join us for this interactive, online event to learn about how our new digital model of creative music-making sessions has been so effective in care homes, hospital schools and intensive treatment wards during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The event will give an overview of all our activity; using the platforms developed in our Sound Young Minds project. You will have the chance to experience a creative music-making session, which combines accessible, online music tools with live improvisation from our musicians, and have the opportunity to ask questions of the team who deliver the activity.

City of London Sinfonia (CLS) takes a leading role in healthcare activity, with our musicians bringing their creativity to address challenges in health and social care: ageing, long-term conditions, loneliness and mental health. Our Orchestra is a recent recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Impact for our Sound Young Minds project, working with young people living with severe mental health and psychiatric conditions.

In this session, you will hear from:

  • Matthew Swann, Chief Executive at City of London Sinfonia
  • Dr John Ivens, Head Teacher at Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School
  • Fiona Lambert, Director of Participation at City of London Sinfonia
  • Gawain Hewitt, Composer and Sound Artist
  • Matt Maguire, City of London Sinfonia Viola
  • John Singer, Chairman at City of London Sinfonia

The event will be recorded for promotional purposes.
