With one in every two children (49%) living below the poverty line in Tower Hamlets – London’s most deprived borough - few young people in the area have, or will ever, experience the joy of listening to a live symphony orchestra.
Grounded in our home of St Anne’s Limehouse, Docklands Sinfonia is on a mission to change this. Our young and pioneering orchestra has become a major cultural force in the Docklands – bringing high quality music to the area, staging ground-breaking concerts and creating a lasting legacy by inspiring generations of young people.
Docklands Sinfonia nurtures young talent at every level - whether providing playing opportunities and work for professional musicians through our professional orchestra or talented non-professional musicians in our e14 orchestra. We also provide a platform for young composers and emerging soloists or through expanding our educational work with schools in the area. We are looking for kind and generous donors to help support our work.
