Creativity and engagement are at the heart of the ethos of Sinfonia Viva. Publicly recognised for its work with young people and adults, Sinfonia Viva prides itself on its truly collaborative approach to education and outreach, working alongside a wide range of partners on bespoke creative musical and performance opportunities for groups around the UK. It is dedicated to creating new and exciting music in its education work, by commissioning composers and workshop leaders to write new pieces, and developing original music directly with participants. In recent years, we have worked on education projects with composers including Anna Meredith, Fraser Trainer and James Redwood, as well as internationally renowned soloists, dancers, choreographers, illustrators and film makers.
Sinfonia Viva can demonstrate a track record of successfully developing and financing new education projects with partners around the UK, including Music Hubs, hospitals, care centres, and schools, with three recent education projects being shortlisted in the British Composer Awards. As an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, Sinfonia Viva also enjoys long standing relationships with Orchestras Live, many local authorities and cultural partners. By also offering logistical support to project partners, Viva’s approach is truly collaborative, drawing on our expertise and networks to allow you to achieve the education project you want.
