Sinfonia, an intermediate full symphony orchestra for middle and high school-age players*, performs classic orchestral repertoire, both original compositions and arrangements. For many wind, brass, and percussion players, Sinfonia is their first orchestral experience, and for string players their first experience with standard full orchestra repertoire. Recent repertoire includes Dvořák’s tone poem Polednice (The Noon Witch) in its original composition. Sinfonia is led by conductor Jason Flaks, recipient of the 2013 Distinguished Music Educator Award from the Yale School of Music, and associate conductor Andrew Masters, each of whom brings experience as both professional performers and directors of thriving school music programs.
