Harmony Sinfonia in the Herne Hill Music Festival
We are delighted to be able to round off this year’s Festival with a Symphony Orchestra concert, for the first time, and at a new venue for the Festival as well. Formed in 2009, Harmony Sinfonia is a vibrant symphony orchestra based in Brockley, performing three concerts a year and promoting classical music to audiences within the borough of Lewisham and its neighbouring boroughs.
Offering a performance platform for both local amateur players of a high standard and music students from local universities, the orchestra aims to work with local music services to provide performance opportunities to school pupils of an advanced standard, and launched its outreach programme in June 2010. Their programme consists of:
Smetana: Vltava from 'Ma Vlast'
Bruch: Violin Concerto (soloist Simon Hewitt Jones)
Dvorak: Symphony no. 9 (from the New World)
