Ely Sinfonia involved in recording for previous “The Voice” contestants!
On 4th March in Peterborough Cathedral, members of Ely Sinfonia were part of a recording session for a CD with local The Voice contestants, twins Hannah and Naomi Moxon. It was a superb evening and a privilege for the orchestra to be involved. Watch this space for news on how the evening goes and when the CD will be available! And if you would like to learn more about the twins, and hear their music, visit www.classicalreflection.co.uk.
We are now really looking forward to our next concert, on Saturday 6th May 2017. We’ll be playing an extraordinary programme: Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis, César Franck’s Symphony in D Minor and Maurice Ravel’s exquisite Le Tombeau de Couperin. We hope to see you there.

Ely Sinfonia’s next workshop, which will be open to anyone who has reached grade V or above, will be on on around Saturday 7th January 2017. Final date and programme to be confirmed..
“Wow – what a concert!” Reviews of some recent concerts
Rosemary Westwell, our local music and arts critic, is a huge supporter of Ely Sinfonia. She has seen the orchestra through from its modest beginnings to the experienced musical ensemble that it is today. In her latest review, of Symphonie Fantastique, in March 2016, she commented that: “The phenomenal technique of the conductor and instrumentalists was evident from the start.” To read the full review, click here.
To find out what she said about our large-scale choral and orchestral concert, Carmina Burana, in October 2015, click here.
She particularly liked our concert in June 2015, Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Afterwards she said: “Strongly led by conductor Steve Bingham, the orchestra (revels) in its now powerful sound. The instrumentalists were confident, expressive and very much a part of the exhilarating atmosphere that pervaded the concert.”

Her review of Island and Hereward in May 2015, involving over 100 adults and children from local choirs and schools, was also highly enthusiastic. To read what she said, click here.
