Welcome to the North Downs Sinfonia

North Downs Sinfonia
We are an amateur symphony orchestra which plays a wide repertoire of orchestral music, with concerts twice a year at Tatsfield Village Hall, in Surrey.

Our aim is to provide a concert programme that is varied and entertaining, with a number of popular favourites, but do not shy away from occasionally  playing the less well known or more challenging work as part of our repertoire.

Thanks to everyone who came to our informal concert earlier this month. We hope to see you again soon.

If you wish to receive occasional news of the North Downs Sinfonia, including information about forthcoming concerts, please contact us and join our mailing list.

For our next concert we're welcoming back Brynly Clarke and Mariela Cingo to perform Mozart's Piano Concerto no. 24 and Beethoven's Symphony no. 1.

14.00Rossini
