Sinfonia is an un-auditioned orchestra, open to musicians of all standards – from very beginner to advanced. With a very relaxed and fun atmosphere, it is perfect for the musician seeking a friendly environment to just play some good music with other people. Our exciting and diverse repertoire encompasses a wide array of styles and genres, ranging from classical to musical theatre numbers and modern day film scores. Rehearsals are held every Monday in the Rehearsal Hall of the Music Department. After each rehearsal there will be a trip to Old Bar where you can get to know your fellow players and throughout the year we will put on many ensemble and joint socials to go for meals out, pub and curry nights and ice skating!
Sinfonia rehearsals have now started but don't worry if you've missed the first couple, just come along and play!
Mondays 7.30pm – 9.30pm
Rehearsal Hall, School of Music
Claire is a second year BA visual communication student, studying at Leeds Arts Univeristy. During her first year of uni she played in sinfonia and worked closely with all the ensembles in LUUMS to make a short video for a live brief on celebrating Leeds. Through this she wanted to continue working with the society and become more involved, and found this through putting herself forward as co-manager of Sinfonia. Although an art student, Claire has been involved with music from a young age, picking up the violin at the age of 10. She played in orchestras and folk gigs back home before coming to uni and getting currently involved with Sinfonia.
