Writing the Future is our open-call programme that supports the careers of composers and music creators through the process of making new work with the ensemble. The programme usually lasts for approximately two years, and allows for longer and innovative new works to be made and performed.
As part of the scheme, composers are offered:
At least one chamber commission to be performed by the London Sinfonietta in a future main season event.
A close working relationship with members of the ensemble to develop ideas.
An introduction to music industry professionals who can advise on different aspects of career development.
Opportunities to work on different aspects of the ensemble’s programme – including digital projects, schools and community work and the London Sinfonietta Academy.
Open access to visit London Sinfonietta rehearsals and concerts.
Opportunities for coaching and mentoring from world-leading composers and conductors as part of the London Sinfonietta’s season, and in partnership with the Southbank Centre where the ensemble is a Resident Orchestra.
