Hastings Sinfonia is an orchestra formed by local professional and talented amateur musicians, we pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming. Founded in 2012 by local 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.
We currently perform two main concerts a year inviting professional soloists to join us. These have included: Daniel Rainey (Violin), Thomasin Trezise (Soprano), Gediminas Varna (Tenor), Christopher Beaumont (Xylophone), Howard Southern (Piano), Gary Marriott (Tenor) Polo Piatti (Piano) Ayaka Tanimoto (Mezzo-soprano), Randy Nichol (Tenor), Simon Proctor (Piano), Ana Leon (Flamenco dancer), Giulio Tampalini (guitar).
In addition to our main concerts, we have performed short interactive concerts at local primary schools, performed at the 2013 International Composers Festival,
Midsummer Fish Fests at the Stade, Old Town, Hastings, we have dressed up and had great fun being part of Hastings Pirates day celebrations and was one of the orchestras that took part in The Battle Of The Somme Centenary Tour.
We are considering and planning many exciting events for the future.
Hastings Sinfonia is supporting local charity the Sara Lee Trust for our Winter Concert, the Sara Lee Trust supports people in Hastings and Rother who are affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses through the provision of free psychological and therapeutic support.
