We’re an orchestra

We’re not an orchestra

Sinfonia Cymru is a dynamic music organisation, whose purpose is to develop and support young professional musicians in the early stages of their careers and, through this, to provide exceptional performances for audiences across Wales and beyond.

Sometimes we’re an orchestra in the traditional sense – ranging from small string ensemble to full symphony orchestra scale. At other times we work in smaller groups to provide intimate musical performances in a variety of musical styles. We present orchestral concerts, chamber concerts, and performances that cross musical boundaries. We’ve worked with major classical artists – such as Bryn Terfel and Sheku Kanneh-Mason – jazz pianist Gwilym Simcock, soul-funk singer Kizzy Crawford, and world music band Kabantu.

Our young players, all under 30, are blessed with huge talent, but they also bring energy, commitment and unbridled enthusiasm to everything they do. Whenever and wherever they play, this adds a palpable excitement to the concert hall that’s impossible to put into words.

Sinfonia Cymru is special and we’d love you to experience our work. So, whether you go to concerts regularly or are thinking of trying for the first time, take advantage of our affordable ticket prices and join us for some wonderful music.
