About

Magna Sinfonia is an orchestra in Dorset that is committed to music-making of the highest quality. We exist primarily for the musician, devising programmes and rehearsal experiences that focus on the pleasure of playing orchestral music.

 

The orchestra is based in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area, however our members are made up of musicians from across the south coast of England. 

 

Following its inception in 2016, the orchestra very quickly gained a reputation as the premier amateur orchestra on the south coast. We work with a wide range of professional conductors and soloists, and a membership made up of professional, semi-professional and the best amateur players in the area, the orchestra is thriving. Magna Sinfonia is a registered charity, overseen by trustees, but is very much guided by its members. 

What makes us different?

  • Short rehearsal bursts - Three concerts a year with three Sunday rehearsals prior. We think this suits busy musicians best. It also makes it easier for us to book renown conductors and soloists.
     

  • Top notch conductors - We book professional conductors. We want to use different conductors as we know this provides a really valuable and enriching experience for us as musicians.
     

  • We attract the best local amateur and semi-professional players. Membership is competitive which is why we have an entry process to join. 

  • Our annual Mahler weekend is giving players an opportunity to cycle the Mahler symphonies. We also put on other well-received playing days and projects outside our usual season
