Notes About Now

London Sinfonietta with Poet in the City

Gerry Cornelius conductor
London Sinfonietta

Following the government announcement on 14 June 2021 regarding the continuation of social distancing, this event will be going ahead as planned. We are pleased to be able to open our doors again and offer you performances in a safe environment. Click here to view some essential safety information about your visit.


The world has changed immeasurably in the last year, with much collective soul searching to find a sense of identity amid lockdown and tragedy, and hope through humanity, kindness and the vaccination programme. Notes about Now features new songs commissioned by London Sinfonietta from composers setting texts created by poets in special projects curated by Poet in the City in collaboration with different communities, just before and in the recent months of the pandemic.  In a performance that mixes the new songs with live readings of new poetry, the evening is a chance to reflect on what unites and connects us, from the joys of local dialects, and experiences of isolation and the myth of the outside world, to anticipating motherhood in a pandemic.

New songs from composers including: Kerry Andrew; Gavin Higgins; Robert Mitchell; Larry Goves

Poetry from writers including: Nazneen Ahmed; Kayo Chingonyi; Fathima Zahra

This project has been devised by London Sinfonietta in association with Poet in the City.
