“Sinfonia New York is a period instrument orchestra that specializes in historically informed, vibrant performances of 17th, 18th and early 19th century music.
Since its debut on October 1st, 2007 at The Town Hall in New York City the group has established itself as a première ensemble that presents old music in thrilling new ways. …
Sinfonia New York was co-founded by Artistic Director Christine Gummere and Executive Director Gene Murrow. The orchestra has a two-fold mission: to create work for seasoned musicians as well as young players just starting their careers, providing them with an environment that encourages their best playing; and to perform music by famous and lesser-known baroque and classical composers in period style.
Under the leadership of John Scott, the orchestra has received critical acclaim for the high quality of its playing. As the Sinfonia Players the group has excelled in presenting chamber concerts featuring music from Monteverdi to Mendelssohn.”
