Comfortable Classical at Home

City of London Sinfonia will be offering a series of online concerts for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home.

Each concert will feature a single CLS musician, broadcasting from their home, playing music and suggesting activity to do alongside their performance – drawing, making up stories, simple movement, mindfulness, etc.

The concerts are intended to be short (10 mins max) and broadcast every Tuesday and Thursday from 11.30am, with 10-15 minutes either side to build social interaction and share stories, drawings, thoughts, comments, etc.

You can access the online concerts through facebook, using the website link on this page or the facebook link on our main provider page. Join is live or watch sessions back at any time.
