We're an orchestra. We're not an orchestra. Sinfonia Cymru occupies a unique space in the music sector. We are an 'under 30s' orchestra, dedicated to supporting the early careers of outstanding young professional musicians. Sometimes we're an orchestra in the traditional sense - ranging from string ensemble to full symphony. At other times, we work with smaller groups of players to provide intimate performances in a variety of styles. Our core work includes chamber orchestral programmes, chamber music recitals, cutting-edge contemporary chamber music, cross-genre projects and projects with, and for schools. We like to challenge the status quo. For some events we experiment with concert formats and unusual venues. Most importantly, though, we provide opportunities for musicians to explore their own creativity, often handing programming power back to the players, giving them the freedom to conceive, develop and deliver their musical ideas.
