In 1971 a small group of local musicians set up The Sherwood Sinfonia, an amateur symphony orchestra, in Bletchley.
From those early days the orchestra has gone from strength to strength to become Milton Keynes Sinfonia, an amateur symphony orchestra 'par excellence', tackling major works in the concert repertoire.
Milton Keynes Sinfonia is now celebrating its 50th birthday with a concert on Saturday 11th December at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone, starting at 7.45 p.m.
The programme begins with Tippett's Suite for the Birth of Prince Charles and concludes with Sibelius's Second Symphony.
A highlight of the programme will be Saint-Saëns 3rd Violin Concerto played by Cristian Grajner Desa, one of our favourite soloists.
