Sinfonia Smith Square is the coming together of two much-loved organisations: Southbank Sinfonia and St John’s Smith Square.

At our heart: an ambitious Fellowship programme to develop the musical careers of some of the brightest emerging talent. At our home: exceptional performances by established world-class artists and immersive music experiences.

Musicians are supported here. Music lovers belong here. This is Sinfonia Smith Square.

Sinfonia Smith Square Fellowship Programme

Sinfonia Smith Square is a beacon for the future of classical music. Every year we welcome 34 talented musicians to form an orchestra. Through world-class collaborations, bold programming, and educational leadership projects, the programme intensifies their professional development and advances their musical careers.

With over 650 alumni, our musicians go on to become leaders in the classical music world. Many continue to play a valued role in Sinfonia Smith Square, returning to coach the musicians and perform as paid extras.

Smith Square Hall

We have been welcoming musicians and music lovers to Smith Square Hall since 1969. From lunchtime recitals, Baroque festivals, late night jazz, to activities for families, we bring the joy of music to ever-wider audiences.

Located in the heart of Westminster, Smith Square Hall is not just a concert hall – it is the foundation for our future. Over the next few years, we will be undertaking a restoration that will create and improve welcoming and accessible spaces for world-class artists, performers, and our orchestra. We will partner with cultural institutions, championing music, theatre, dance, art, literature, and current affairs.
