Friends of Sinfonietta

Why not consider supporting the Orchestra further by becoming a ‘Friend of Sinfonietta’?  

Sinfonietta takes pride in our reputation for high quality performance through the wide range of challenging repertoire we cover. We are an entirely student run orchestra, relying on commitment, dedication and enthusiasm from all member involved to further build on our outstanding reputation. Our aims are to provide members with an incredibly valuable musical and social experience, inclusive of those wishing to engage in a future musical career, and those who study under other faculties at the University.

The support from our audiences each concert is greatly appreciated and is what Sinfonietta needs to thrive. However, financially the orchestra struggles to break even with our outgoing concert costs. Sinfonietta receives extremely limited funding from the University, therefore we must find other methods of income to ensure our concerts reach our full potential, while keeping membership for the orchestra affordable.
