Hastings Sinfonia is a vibrant orchestra formed by local professional and talented musicians, we pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming.   Founded in 2012 by Hastings composer and pianist  Polo Piatti,  we perform music that is popular and easy to listen to, often playing many shorter pieces.  We include old classics, popular works, film music, opera highlights and new melodic works by living composers; our concerts are therefore ideal for people new to classical music as well as serious music lovers.

We bring passion and enthusiasm to all of our concerts and love challenges.
