The Mid Sussex Sinfonia, established in 1971, is the area’s foremost amateur orchestra. Drawing on the skills of both talented amateurs as well as local teachers it gives four concerts a year as part of its season at Clair Hall in Haywards Heath. Continuing its tradition of engaging with other local organisations, the Sinfonia regularly performs with the Ardingly Choral Society and recently produced a Christmas concert with the Balcombe and Lindfield School of Dance.
The Mid Sussex Sinfonia string section took part in last year’s Lindfied Arts Festival and makes a welcome return under the Directorship of its leader, Martin Palmer (pictured) in a concert of string favourites. This will include Karl Jenkins’ sparkling and diamond-studded ‘Palladio’, Pachelbel’s famous Canon , Warlock’s Capriol Suite, and Bach’s beautiful Violin Concerto in A minor followed by his sublime ‘Air on a G String’.
The Sinfonia is pleased also to have the company of the local and ever popular mezzo-soprano, Jane Haughton. Jane will be singing the deeply moving song cycle ‘Love Blows as the Wind Blows’ written by George Butterworth just before the outbreak of the first world war; a conflict in which he tragically lost his life.
The Lindfield Arts Festival hopes that you will join the Mid Sussex Sinfonia in this concert of the most beautiful and uplifting music.
