At the Royal Philharmonic Society annual awards, November 2020, the City of London Sinfonia (CLS) school-based project, “Sound Young minds” won the Impact Award:
“Impact Award – for an outstanding initiative or organisation which set out to engage and have a lasting positive impact on the lives of people who may not otherwise experience classical music.”
This award was given for joint-working between pupils and CLS across both sites of the school over 3 years.
Big congratulations to all those at CLS for winning this award for their work with our pupils!
