Partners and Investors

Britten Sinfonia aims to be the international benchmark for the chamber orchestra. Our roots remain in the East of England, a region emerging as major force in contemporary arts. This region, and our Cambridge and Norwich series in particular, is our testing ground for projects with a range of world class composers, performers and conductors, from where we then tour events to other key centres in the UK and abroad.

As well as our concerts, we also have a thriving Creative Learning programme making the orchestra available to the widest possible audience through exciting projects that involve Britten Sinfonia musicians in many settings, from schools to prisons to swimming pools. The programme enables anyone to experience high quality music-making activities, whether they have previous experience of music or not.

These are exciting times for Britten Sinfonia, and there are many ways for companies and funders to become involved in our work. Individuals interested in supporting Britten Sinfonia are invited to browse our various schemes in the Support us section of this site.
