Farnham Sinfonia

“A town of the size of Farnham should be proud to have an orchestra of this calibre…”  (Farnham Herald)

The aim of Farnham Sinfonia is to play attractive music from the classical and romantic periods in combination with carefully chosen short works by 20th century British and contemporary composers who are insufficiently known.
