Sinfonia was founded in 1972 by Graham Bennett who conducted the orchestra for the next 17 years. Graham's avowed aim was to bring together the best amateur musicians in the area and to weld them into a chamber orchestra with professional standards of performance and presentation. Our first concert was given in January 1973 at the then City of Leeds and Carnegie College, Beckett Park, Headingley (now part of Leeds Beckett University)...
In addition, Sinfonia is committed to supporting young musicians and has featured the following over the last few years: Yuanfan Yang and Lara Melda (piano), Jordan Black (clarinet) and Sophie Rosa, Nathalie Shaw and Emma Oldfield (violin)...
Also known as: Sinfonia of Leeds
