Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Orchestra

Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Orchestra

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields was founded in 1959 by Sir Neville Marriner and a group of London’s leading orchestral players. Originally formed as a small conductorless string group, it spearheaded the 1950’s Baroque revival.

Since those early days, the academy has expanded and experimented widely and now divides its time equally between international tours, UK concerts and sessions in the recording studio.

Sir Neville Marriner continues as the orchestra’s artistic and music director and as conductor of the symphony orchestra. Iona Brown and Kenneth Sillito are artistic directors of the chamber orchestra and Kenneth Sillito also directs the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble. The academy makes regular visits to USA, France, Germany, Switzerland, Scandinavia and Japan.

Audiences in London have the opportunity to hear the academy in concerts at the South Bank and Barbican Centres, and the orchestra performs throughout the UK at the major musical centres.

The academy has a flourishing education program and players take part in a wide range of educational projects with schools and community groups throughout the UK. Projects are tailored to suit each group and provide people of all ages and abilities with the opportunity to work with many of the country’s finest musicians.
