Sinfonia Cymru's 2018/19 places the players firmly to the fore. The orchestra's leader, Caroline Pether, directe and features as soloist in a programme of Eric Whitacre, Samuel Barber, Grieg and Vivaldi. And individual players are curating the concerts which make up the ensembles series @Tramshed Tech, where Sinfonia Cymru is returning to the former Cardiff industrial workspace Tramshed Tech for programmes which mix an eclectic choice of music with film projections and digital installations from emerging composers.

There are guests in the season too, cellist Sheku Kanneh Mason performs Haydn with the orchestra in a programme conducted by Jonathan Bloxham which includes music by CPE Bach, Beethoven and Ives. And the world music collective, Kabantu joins the ensemble for a programme inspired by folk songs from Wales and from the UK. There are lunchtime concerts too, and a creative learning project with children from schools across Powys (with the Mid Wales Music Trust).

Sinfonia Cymru is a lively Cardiff-based ensemble made up of young professionals in the early stages of their careers, all are in their 20s. The ensemble is known for its eclectic programming and an exciting freedom in the way it curates concerts, often breaking traditional concert barriers.
