The City of London Sinfonia (CLS) was founded in 1971 by its Music Director Richard Hickox. With Hickox and Andrew Watkinson (Leader/Director) CLS appears at many of the UK's leading festivals and concert venues, tours all over the world, broadcasts regularly on radio and television and has an enviable recording repertoire. As the City of London's Chamber Orchestra, CLS performs throughout the City, in particular at the Barbican Centre and in City churches.

The City of London Sinfonia is particulalry active in the recording studio with a discography exceeding one hundred recordings featuring such renowned soloists, conductors and choirs as Richard Hickox (CLS Founder and Music Director), Dame Janet Baker (CLS President), Steven Isserlis, and the London Symphony Chorus.

The City of Lonon Sinfonia also reaches its audience through its pioneering Education and Community Programme (both in England and abroad), providing services to a wide range of community groups including mainstream and special needs children and young people, parents and toddlers, musicians in amateur orchestras, patients in hospitals and residents in homes and hospices. Members of the Orchestra lead creative music workshops (often in conjunction with artists from other artforms) which relate to the specific needs of each group and which are often linked to orchestral concerts.
