Ely Sinfonia

01353 721991
High quality community orchestra serving Ely and the Fens. Members come from across the community and get together to play a wide repertoire, from light classical and contemporary works to major concertos and symphonies. Training days and summer schools supplement the orchestra's busy concert programme.
Inner View: Ely Sinfonia is the first ever high quality ensemble to be based in Ely. Launched in November 1999, it is made up of players of all ages and backgrounds, including school and college students, business professionals, retired individuals and local music teachers. The orchestra's repertoire includes a wide range of contemporary music as well as mainstream works such as Elgar's Violin Concerto, which it performed in Soham in April 2005. As well as playing full orchestral works, Ely Sinfonia also provides smaller groups, which play at events such as the Easter Day mass in Ely cathedral. Projects for the future include the inauguration of a series of training days, coached by professionals, for less experienced players who want to develop their orchestral and ensemble playing techniques.
