The Orpheus Sinfonia is an orchestra of young professionals which is designed to give those coming out of college greater support and opportunities. Conducted by Thomas Carroll, the group gives a varied programme of performances and they started this season performing Richard Strauss with Dame Felicity Lott. 

On 27 November 2014 at St. George's Church, Hanover Square, they present Revolution: The Beethoven Effect in which Thomas Carroll conducts the orchestra in a concert exploring how Beethoven's symphonies and how they transformed our view of what a symphony is. Music from his symphonies will be performed alongside images, and there will be excerpts from his letters read by the actor Michael Bodie. Beethoven's Eroica Symphony will be performed complete in the second half of the concert.

The Beethoven concert is the start of Orpheus Sinfonia's new season Beneath the score and Thomas Carroll will be both conducting and presenting.
