|Taunton Sinfonietta is a small chamber group which performs on average five times a year, usually at local churches.|
Next Taunton Concert - Gems in June - Saturday 22nd June 2019, 7.30pm at St. James' Church, Taunton.Named "Gems in June", the programme features music for oboe and strings. We are delighted to be joined again by our friend Lynn Carter (oboe) who will perform Cimarosa's Concerto and Zipole's Adagio. The concert also features Dvorak's immense Serenade for Strings alongside another friend, Clive Jenkins' Serenade for Strings, plus Elgar's Idylle and Philip Glass' "Company" for String Orchestra. A veritable musical treat!
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.
