|Taunton Sinfonietta is a small chamber group which performs on average five times a year, usually at local churches.|
Next Taunton Concert - Taunton Sinfonietta - Saturday 22nd September 2018, 7.30pm at St James Church, Taunton. September Strings: Concerti Grossi by Handel and Vivaldi, Respighi's Ancient Airs and Dances, Haydn's Violin Concerto in C with soloist Mary Eade, Kalinnikov's Serenade for Strings and Cyril Rootham's Miniature Suite for String Orchestra and Piano.
The Sinfonietta employs a range of soloists, aiming to encourage younger performers as often as possible. To this end, the winner of the Taunton Young Musician competition performs with the orchestra as part of their prize. The orchestra is also happy to premier works by local composers. Programmes are varied and include pieces from the baroque, classical, romantic and more modern periods. The Sinfonietta is supported by Patrons and Friends. We are also on Facebook and Twitter.
