Southbank Sinfonia, London

Southbank Sinfonia at the Tower of London

An evening with the Southbank Sinfonia at the Tower of London

EFG’s partnership with Southbank Sinfonia in London goes back over a decade and provides a vital entry point for young musicians to thrive in the professional world. The unprecedented circumstances of 2020 have had a huge impact on Southbank Sinfonia’s ability to perform together, so we worked collaboratively with them and another EFG partner, Historic Royal Palaces, to create an evening of uplifting music in the unique setting of the Tower of London, which includes pieces by Tchaikovsky, Britten and Grieg, and insights from the young musicians.
