Rutland Sinfonia

The Rutland Sinfonia is an amateur orchestra based in Oakham, but there is nothing ‘amateur’ about the quality of our performances. In 2016/2017, we celebrated the 40th Season since Barry Collett, our Conductor Emeritus, founded the Sinfonia. Our aim is still to bring high quality, enjoyable and inspiring performances of orchestral music to smaller towns and villages in rural areas in and around Rutland.

The Sinfonia presents imaginative programmes of music for medium to large orchestra, with popular classical works, lesser known pieces, solo works and music from the Movies and Musicals. Our players, with our inspirational Music Director Paul Hilliam, Associate Conductor David Calow, Leader Katherine Collison and our excellent soloists make a great team.

We give four concerts each season. In recent seasons that has included two in Oakham Chapel in Oakham and two in St Peter’s Church, Oundle.
