|Taunton Sinfonietta is a small chamber group which performs on average five times a year, usually at local churches.|
Next Taunton Concert - Taunton Sinfonietta - Sunday 11th February 2018, 3.00pm at St James Church, Taunton. Music arranged for Bassoon, Clarinet and Strings by Elgar, Spohr, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. Martin Gatt joins the orchestra for his arrangements of Elgar's Romance for Bassoon & Strings and Spohr's Adagio and Colin Parr is the soloist in Beethoven's Trio op 11. Mary Eade plays Beethoven's Romance in F and we finish with Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.
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.
