We’re putting on a short flashmob-style Music for Peace concert at Cabot Circus at 12 noon on Saturday 26th March to raise funds for Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC)Ukraine appeal.

50 of our players, plus some friends of the orchestra will be performing the Ukrainian National Anthem and movements from Elgar’s Enigma Variations, conducted by Mark Gateshill.   

Our Spring concert on Saturday 19th March features a beautiful selection of orchestral classical music inspired by the sea!

Conducted by Mark Gateshill, we’ll start with Mendelssohn’s Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage followed by The Sea by Bridge.

After the interval, we’ll be playing Elgar’s Enigma Variations, a piece close to our hearts as Variation 9 (Nimrod) was the subject of our first lockdown project in 2020.

Come along to our family-friendly Christmas concert and sing-along for old Christmas favourites and new, mince pies and mulled wine. Everyone is welcome and Christmas jumpers are encouraged. Our leader Tina Mehta has promised to come dressed as a Christmas Pud! 4:30pm at Henleaze UR Church, tickets can be purchased on the door. Fun and laughter are guaranteed!

It's been nearly two years since our last concert in the autumn of 2019, and we are finally back, preparing for our next concert - "Winter Daydreams" - on November 6th, 2021. A full orchestral performance featuring Tchaikovsky's revered first symphony, as well as pieces by Smetana and Dvorak. We look forward to seeing you again!

As we're not able to rehearse or hold concerts at the moment, we decided to have a go at creating our own lockdown video!  17 members of Brunel Sinfonia were involved in recording a performance of Elgar's Nimrod from the Enigma Variations: trumpet, wind quartet and lots of strings.   We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.  Our next project is a cello arrangement of Elgar's Serenade for Strings, so watch this space...

Unfortunately due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the Brunel Sinfonia committee has taken the decision to cancel both the evening and children concerts on March 21st.

Tickets purchased online through our website will be refunded shortly through our payment provider 'Stripe'.
Any other tickets that were bought through members of the orchestra will be refunded directly to that player. 

We’re celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a performance of his wonderful Pastoral Symphony, paired with Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring for a truly memorable night of music.

We chose to perform the Pastoral in part due to this impassioned letter from a member of the violin section (name withheld)……!

 

Our Autumn concert on Saturday 19 th October, 7:30pm at Redland Hall is a bohemian extravaganza featuring music by Dvořák, Janáček and Kodály.

We have a great programme for our summer concert on Saturday 6th July at 7:30pm at Redland Hall in the lovely grounds of Redmaids’ High school.
 

Join in with festive tunes from a live orchestra

For lots of us, Christmas is about tradition; putting up the same beloved but battered decorations on the tree, opening the final doors of your advent calendar on the 24 December, the first of many mince pies.

But the festive season also involves a lot of hard work, rushing around, buying presents, food, doing all the jobs to make everything go smoothly.
