St Paul’s Sinfonia is a chamber orchestra based in Greenwich and Lewisham, south London. Its concert series has been running since 2004, and in September 2013, the orchestra will enter its tenth season of concerts. The Sinfonia prides itself on its wide repertoire, from Romantic symphonies to smaller Baroque masterpieces, and from some of the earliest music for chamber orchestra to brand-new commissions.
The Sinfonia’s 2013 collaboration with New Sussex Opera proved a delight for all – players, singers and audiences alike. Chabrier’s L’Etoile (Lucky Star in Jeremy Sams’s superb translation) is a frothy, effervescent cocktail with more than a soupçon of Offenbach or, for UK audiences, a hint of Gilbert and Sullivan. It proved a hit for Rupert Christiansen in the Daily Telegraph as well, who wrote in his review that ‘St Paul’s Sinfonia played with terrific verve under Nicholas Jenkins’ – which was very nice to read!
