Sinfonia Cymru celebrates 25 years with 25 concerts11:47, 15th September 2020
Sinfonia Cymru has launched its 25th anniversary season with a new website, an online talk show series, and plans for live concerts in 2021.
‘In conversation’ is hosted by leader Caroline Pether, and will provide insights into the group’s musicians, artists and friends.
The orchestra also hopes to return to live music-making in 2021 with 25 performances across Wales in The Mainly Village Halls Tour.
Chief executive Peter Bellingham pointed out that the pandemic had reminded the orchestra of the importance of local community: ‘At Sinfonia Cymru, we’ve always valued our work in rural communities – for example, our regular orchestral concerts in Pontyberem. To mark our 25th year, and as a professional orchestra for Wales, we are stepping up that element of our work with a series of 25 free mini concerts in rural settings across Wales in The Mainly Village Halls Tour.’
He continued: ‘In the run up to our celebrations next year, we have also launched a new website, which enables an array of digital performances for people to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes, a look back at material from our archives, and lots of ways to find out more about our talented young musicians.’
