Our school has a long term partnership with City of London Sinfonia, who have been delivering fantastic outreach residencies with our pupils over a number of years. One memorable project involved a musical sculpture which was exhibited at London’s Tate Gallery, and now we have a new announcement to celebrate:
City of London Sinfonia has been nominated and shortlisted for a Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) Award for their residency projects in our school. Their recent “Sound Young Minds” project is one of four projects listed in the impact category. These are prestigious awards, not unlike the “Oscars” of UK classical music and the shortlist was announced live on Radio 3.
Each category receives many nominations and is judged by a panel of senior classical music and participation professionals, so this a wonderful acknowledgement of our successful partnership. CLS were also shortlisted for a second award in the Ensemble category.
The full list of award categories and shortlists are available here:
The award winners will be announced on Wednesday 18 November in a digital presentation.
