Covent Garden Sinfonia
Covent Garden Sinfonia (formerly the Orchestra of St Paul's) is firmly established as one of London's most dynamic and versatile chamber orchestras. Under the baton of Artistic Director Ben Palmer, since 2007 the orchestra has been developing a reputation for imaginative programming and exciting, stylish performances. Resident at the famous Actors' Church, St Paul's in Covent Garden, the orchestra performs regularly at London's leading concert venues, including Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room, St John's Smith Square, Cadogan Hall and Milton Court.
Based around a core of principal players, CGS adapts to each project, ranging in size from a small ensemble to a full symphony orchestra of 70 or more. Covent Garden Sinfonia is one of the UK's foremost orchestras specialising in the performance of music live to film, with recent screenings including Psycho , Casablanca , The Gold Rush (and other Chaplin shorts), Peter and the Wolf , The Snowman , and the world premiere of Neil Brand's score for Hitchcock's The Lodger . The orchestra's latest recording, a disc of music by Antonio Lotti with chamber choir The Syred Consort on the Delphian label, entered the Specialist Classical Chart at No. 2, was chosen as the BBC Radio 3 Record Review 'Disc of the Week', and was selected as one of Presto Classical's Top Ten discs of 2016. Other recordings include a critically acclaimed CD of music for strings by Elgar, Malcolm Arnold (both in arrangements by David Matthews) and Robert Simpson.
