SINFONIA OF BIRMINGHAM - 25th anniversary in Warwick by Christopher Morley

It's 25 years since the Sinfonia of Birmingham gave its inaugural concert in St Mary's Church, Moseley. On Saturday October 6 it celebrates its Silver Jubilee with its first visit to another St Mary's, the Parish Church in Warwick, with Elgar's Violin Concerto and Brahms' Symphony no.2 (7.30pm).

Zoe Beyers is soloist in the Elgar, and Michael Seal is the conductor (his 68th concert with the Sinfonia), and both, like so many musicians who have performed with the orchestra, have strong associations with the CBSO.

The Sinfonia has performed throughout the Midlands region, with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Berio. This forthcoming season sees it moving on from Warwick to play in Solihull School Chapel (Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem and The Lark Ascending), Pershore Abbey (a massive programme of Berlioz' Harold in Italy and Rachmaninov's Second Symphony), and joins the Solihull Chandos Choir in Shirley Methodist Church for Haydn's Harmoniemesse. Their busy season ends with the Sinfonia's summer concert in St Andrew's Church, Barnt Green.
