Berks Sinfonietta, founded with friends in 2014 by our Director of Music David McConnell, is dedicated to exploring the vast repertoire of all periods. One of its distinguishing characteristics is the intergenerational approach, where young professionals, advanced students and gifted amateurs come together to learn from one another and to create performances of unqualified excellence. (Our own Naomi Main often performs with the group!) This performance will be the first time the orchestra has played in Lancaster, and features by Haydn, Mozart, Andree and Wranitzky.
