    We are incredibly proud to have the opportunity to work alongside some incredible organisations as part of our Meet the Music outreach initiatives. Founded in 1988, City of London Sinfonia's education and outreach programme was one of the first to be established by a UK orchestra. Our musicians spend many hours outside the concert hall working with young people, in hospitals and in residential homes, bringing music making into the community.

    Growth through Music brings music and musicians into schools, nurseries and community settings. Our annual Lullaby Concert Tour works with very young children across Suffolk, Lincolnshire and Essex. These tours are organised alongside our partner Orchestras Live as part of their First Time Live scheme, which addresses the barriers preventing young people in culturally-disadvantaged regions from attending orchestral concerts. These interactive concerts are presented by Claire Bloor , our animateur in residence, and provide an opportunity for our young audiences to try out a range of orchestral instruments .

    Wellbeing through Music includes work in the field of health and wellbeing, including our regular visits to Great Ormond Street and Evelina Children's Hospitals, in which our musicians perform on the wards as well as providing concerts.

    Our rapidly expanding L'Chaim programme sends musicians into residential homes for elderly Jewish refugees and holocaust survivors for a series of interactive concerts.
