Covent Garden Sinfonia

Covent Garden Sinfonia is delighted to open the Barbican Cinema's autumn ‘Silent Film and Live Music’ series with the live premiere performance of silent film London Symphony, a brand new city symphony which offers a poetic journey through London. Directed by Alex Barrett, it is an artistic snapshot of the city as it stands today, and a celebration of its culture and diversity, presented with James McWilliam's accompanying score played live to screen.

The performance will be followed by a discussion featuring the filmmakers and London history specialist Mark Rowland, chair of Footprints of London.
