Working with professional conductors, leaders and soloists from the Birmingham area, the Sinfonia of Birmingham aims to provide high quality music for the community - from the community.

Join the Sinfonia of Birmingham at its next performance:
On Sunday 5th March 2017 at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre, King Edward's School, Edgbaston
The concert will start with Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony No. 2, which was written in almost romantic style in two movements. The first movement has a poignant beauty of a couple lamenting their past joys; and the second sparkles with their current joy, before returning to lament their anguish.
The Sinfonia is delighted to welcome Kate Suthers of the CBSO to perform Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto (which needs no explanation).
The concert will finish with Schumann's Symphony No. 2, which was first performed in 1846. At the time, Schumann was suffering with health problems, and so it is surprising that this symphony sounds so cheerful - written almost entirely in C major.
