Hastings Sinfonia.jpg

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.

"Just to put on record my total pleasure in hearing the Hastings Sinfonia Orchestra.

It has been going now for 11 years and each concert is better than the last.

It is an orchestra of outstanding versatility and virtuosity and often quite takes my breath away. It has certainly given a great boost to the cultural life of Hastings.

The music chosen is always accessible, never esoteric or pretentious and we have heard several virtuoso performances by extremely talented young musicians that will never be forgotten.

Long may this orchestra thrive.

Libera Nos Oratorio

Performing Polo Piatti's  Oratorio was an utterly thrilling and unforgettable experience. It left performers and the audience moved and elated.
