Inspiring children and young people

We design vital opportunities for children and young people who don't have the opportunity to engage with live orchestral music. In a typical year, we engage around 15,000 children and young people through our orchestral projects.

Lullaby Concerts

Over ten years, our Lullaby Concerts with City of London Sinfonia have reached over 20,000 young people and their families through 105 concerts. For many this is their first experience of live orchestral music, and these first encounters have gone on to inspire young audience members to take up an instrument and encourage families to experience more live music together.
