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
Charlie is a second year Mathematics student from Bromley. In the past he has been heavily involved with LUUMS having been the principal trombonist of the Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Wind Orchestra and the Brass Band. He was also a manager of the Chamber Choir and a very vital 2nd bass to the choir. Since coming to university, his passion for orchestral music has grown exponentially and he is now very much looking forward to being at the centre of it all with Sinfonia! Charlie’s musical experience began aged 6 when he started the piano. After many years of that he eventually concluded it wasn’t a natural talent, so he started learning the trombone aged 12 which was the best decision he ever made! He has also been singing with Choirs since he was 11, most notably the Bromley Boy Singers. Outside of music, Charlie’s main passion is roller coasters having ridden over 100 different ones across Europe and some of the US (including the world’s tallest roller coaster). In addition, he also enjoys a good round of Mario Kart and a nice cool pint or two in Old Bar.
