In the Community - Southbank Sinfonia

In the Community

While Southbank Sinfonia is poised to take its unique brand of inspiration wherever the need is greatest, the orchestra – true to its name – has always been dedicated to connecting with young people in our immediate locality, in disadvantaged Lambeth and Southwark communities. Here we can be consistently visible and plan long term ventures which give participants a growing sense of involvement year on year.
