LUUMS SINFONIA

Sinfonia is an un-auditioned orchestra, open to musicians of all standards – from beginner to advanced. With a very relaxed and fun atmosphere, it is perfect for the musician seeking a friendly environment to play some good music with other people. Our exciting and diverse repertoire encompasses a wide array of styles and genres,including classical pieces, film scores, musical theatre and pop medleys. Rehearsals are held every Monday in the Rehearsal Hall of the Music Department. After each rehearsal we go to Old Bar, and with many Sinfonia socials like bowling, laser tag and cinema trips, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get to know your fellow players.

 

Due to the situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently unsure when rehearsals will start in the academic year 2020/21. Make sure to join our Facebook group for updates regarding rehearsals and socials! There will also be some online Sinfonia and wider LUUMS socials for you to get involved with. We look forward to meeting you!

Join our Facebook group for more information.

Abigail Yates

Manager

Abi is a second year Physics Student from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. She has played the Saxophone since she was 9 and decided to pick up the Oboe when she was 15 so she could play in orchestras as well as bands. Since then she has played in many ensembles and has thoroughly enjoyed playing in LUUMS Sinfonia and Concert Band. Abi is excited to take on her role as manager to make sure Sinfonia remains a fun and welcoming environment for players of all standards this year. She also has plans for some fun socials for the members of the orchestra to get to know each other! Other than LUUMS, Abi is a member of Physics Society and is involved in Student Radio.

Charlie Terry 

Conductor

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.

Joanna Fountain

Manager

Jo is a second year Music and Maths student from Buckinghamshire. Originally a saxophonist, she picked up the bassoon at the beginning of sixth form. Since then she has played in lots of orchestras and windbands both at home and at university, including the Bucks Youth Wind Ensemble and Bucks County Youth Orchestra. Last year in LUUMS she was part of Sinfonia, Concert Band and Chamber Orchestra, and is excited to be even more involved this year. When not surrounded by music, you will find Jo with a cup of tea and a good book.
