Southbank Sinfonia formally joined with St John's Smith Square in April 2021. Southbank Sinfonia (SbS) was formed in 2002 and provides an annual development programme, known as 'The Fellowship' for 33 gifted young professional musicians from all over the world. We provide a bursary supporting the players through the year, meaning those with the most talent, not means, can be appointed. St John's Smith Square (SJSS) is a world-renowned music venue, one of the most important English Baroque former church buildings in London, boasting a superb acoustic and located close to the Palace of Westminster. It isĀ Grade I listed amd ised as a concert hall for hire by third parties and for music Festivals which we organise and promote. Our vision is to create a dynamic cultural hub with emerging talent at its heart. Having a permanent home allows SbS the freedom to fulfill its objectives and there are many opportunities to 'cross-pollinate' the Fellowship programme with visiting artists and ensembles, establishing valuable new partnerships for the benefit of players, audience and participants.


SbS Players enjoy unparalleled opportunities to perform and gain crucial experience in orchestral repertoire, chamber music, opera, dance and theatre. Integral to the programme are the orchestra's creative partnerships with leading arts organisations including the Royal Opera, National Theatre, Academy of St Marting in the Fields, and acclaimed artists such as Patrons Vladimir Ashkenazy and Edward Gardner.
