London Sinfonietta 50th Anniversary Season 2017/18

11 Oct 2017 - 12 Jun 2018

In 2018, the London Sinfonietta will be 50 years old. Since 1968, the orchestra has been championing the music of the 20th century, and it plays a vital part in making the new music of the 21st.

And so this is the season of unfinished business:  the orchestra celebrates its rich cultural legacy with landmark musical moments, and looks to the future with groundbreaking collaborations, new site-specific work and a festival of projects involving the public in their making. 

Highlights include the 50th birthday concert with David Atherton, George Benjamin and Vladimir Jurowski, a full performance of Hans Werne Henze’s ode to activism, Voices, and an all-Stockhausen programme conducted by Oliver Knussen.
