City of London Sinfonia Sound Young Minds wins Royal Philharmonic Society award

We would like to offer congratulations to the City of London Sinfonia for winning the RPS Award for impact. Sound Young Minds, led by sound artist Gawain Hewitt with CLS musicians, is a groundbreaking programme working in hospitals with young people with mental health issues. The programme explores how music can have a powerful impact on young people during particularly challenging times in their lives. Sound Connections is the independent evaluator and critical friend for this programme.

Sound Young Minds is a bespoke programme originated by City of London Sinfonia in partnership with Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School and funded by Youth Music, that builds confidence and self-esteem in young people living with severe mental health and psychiatric conditions through music-making and sharing.

Now in its fourth year, it is the only programme of its kind in the UK and is one of the central pillars of CLS’s singular identity informing every aspect of its work from world-renowned concert stages to care homes, the digital sphere to schools.
