ABOUT THE OXFORD SINFONIA

Founded in 1984, we are an amateur chamber orchestra of the highest standard. The orchestra does not have a fixed membership or a permanent musical director. This enables it to engage a wide range of accomplished musicians to direct and play in each concert. Many of our players are involved in music professionally, though not necessarily as performers.

We promote four concerts a year and some special projects, and specialise in accompanying choral societies. We have been involved in twinning concerts, fireworks concerts and concerts for charities.

We regularly offer young, up-and-coming soloists and conductors the opportunity to work with the orchestra.

We are a registered charity no 1005364.
