The English Sinfonia is one of the earliest established chamber orchestras in the UK, well-known for their engaging interpretations of British music.
Under the leadership of distinguished violinist Janice Graham, today’s orchestra is a versatile and flexible ensemble, formed of a core group of well-established players each at the height of their career, who as individuals perform music of many genres in a variety of settings, from symphonic and chamber music, opera and ballet to commercial music and film/tv soundtracks. Spanning almost six decades, the orchestra’s discography is rich in 19th and 20th century music, including both familiar and lesser-known works by Holst, Butterworth, Vaughan Williams and Bridge.
“With a musician like Graham at its helm, it’s no wonder the English Sinfonia has earned such a prominent place on the international music scene.”
