Every year, Lakeland Sinfonia brings together gatherings of great local musicians for two concerts, each performed under a professional conductor with a renowned soloist.
Lakeland Sinfonia is the Society’s own orchestra, comprising musicians from across the north-west of England. They are principally peripatetic instrument teachers, many of them based in Cumbria, plus retired or semi-retired professional orchestra players.
The orchestra is managed by Peter Crompton, who is also the Librarian and a soloist trumpet player. The Leader is accomplished violin soloist Martin Hughes, and a frequent conductor is Welsh conductor, Wyn Davies, known for his work at the Buxton Festival, with the Hallé and for Opera North.
The Lakeland Sinfonia orchestra is based in Kendal, where rehearsals and performances are held, and it welcomes new players and new playing opportunities.
Lakeland Sinfonia would love to hear from aspiring players of all ages and the most appropriate contact is Peter Crompton via the website Contact form.
