Join award winning chamber orchestra Sinfonia Cymru, directed by Caroline Pether, for a beautiful and lyrical programme of music by Whitacre, Grieg, Barber and Vivaldi.
From Vivaldi’s popular and evocative The Four Seasons, to the reflective peacefulness of Whitacre’s October, written about the composer’s favourite month, this is music to inspire.
Grieg’s Holberg Suite, written in the style of dances from the playwright Holberg’s lifetime, and Barber’s classic Adagio for Strings complete the programme.
Daring, innovative and mould breaking, Sinfonia Cymru is a dynamic Cardiff-based chamber orchestra dedicated to supporting some of the best and most talented young professional musicians inthe early stages of their careers. Sinfonia Cymru presents a diverse programme each year with activities including orchestral touring, chamber music, creative learning and health & well-being projects.
