"The music-making was committed and passionate...incredibly impressive playing."
The South Birmingham Sinfonia (SBS) is a full sized non-professional symphony orchestra committed to music-making of the highest standard. SBS is based in Bournville, Birmingham UK. Please explore these web pages to find out more about SBS or go to the Orchestra's facebook pages.
Like everyone else, our activities had to be put on hold during the corona virus pandemic. Apart from the obvious lockdown restrictions, the problems of playing musical instruments in the times of an airborne virus can be significant.
The orchestra is just in the position of starting to start up again, albeit on a smaller scale than before to start with. Do get in touch with us if you have specific requests or questions.
Date to be confirmed, possibly February 2022.
Programme to be confirmed but may include:
The November 2019 Playday was on Saturday, 2nd November, when we will be studying Saint-Saëns’ Symphony number 3.
Other playdays are being planned, see here for details later!
Places may be available in a number of sections of the orchestra, e.g. most string instruments, and some others. Please ask!
SBS has a long record of support for St Mary’s Hospice and makes regular donations to this worthy cause from its concert profits. The upcoming concert is no exception.
