Our Curate initiative puts musicians at the heart of what we do. Through Curate, musicians get together and discuss ideas for concerts and events, and receive support to develop those ideas right through to performance. The initiative began in 2013 with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and led to groundbreaking events including Unease (2013), UnButtoned (2014) and The Freddie Mercury Project (2016).
In 2017-18, Sinfonia Cymru began a new partnership with tech/creative shared workspace Tramshed Tech to present a series of concerts from their beautiful former industrial building in Cardiff, all of which were streamed online via Facebook Live and available to watch for 30 days afterwards. The project received commission funding from The Space and featured eclectically programmed concerts, with an emphasis on modern classical music, and digital installations taking place in the intervals by emerging young composers.
The 2018-19 series concerts are in October (curated by Benjamin Mellefont), December (curated by Delia Stevens), March (curated by Helen Wilson) and June (curated by Abel Selaocoe). Visit our What’s On page for more information and to book tickets.
