About

Acclaimed as “a world-class orchestra” (Russelsheimer Echo, Germany), Sinfonia Toronto is one of Canada’s finest chamber orchestras. The orchestra performs its Masterpiece Series downtown at Glenn Gould Studio and in North York at the Toronto Centre for the Arts. Sinfonia Toronto performs in other Ontario cities and inspires Toronto students each year with its interactive ‘Concerts under Construction’ in-school program.

Sinfonia Toronto consists of thirteen virtuoso strings. They perform standing, in the tradition of great European chamber orchestras, blending each musician’s soloistic energy and passion into a brilliant ensemble style under Nurhan Arman’s inspired direction.

The orchestra’s repertoire includes all the major compositions for string orchestra from the Baroque through Classical, Romantic and 20th-Century works. Sinfonia Toronto has premiered many new works and has been praised by the Canada Council for its commitment to performing music by Canadian composers.

Sinfonia Toronto’s CD of music by Mendelssohn, Khachaturian and Shostakovich is frequently broadcast on Classical 96.3 and other classical stations. Their world premiere of the rediscovered Bach aria ‘Alles Mit Gott’ is available on iTunes. Flanders Fields Reflections, their Marquis Classics CD of music by John Burge, won the 2009 JUNO for Best Recording of a New Classical Work. Their CD’s Hollywood Flute and Premieres were both recorded by Cambria and are distributed by Naxos.

Sinfonia Toronto’s tour in Germany generated review headlines such as ‘’Sinfonia Toronto Inspires,’’ and ‘’Sinfonia Toronto Thrilled the Audience,’’ and their two-week tour of Spain was greeted with calls for encores at each performance, including a record-setting four encores demanded by the audience in Barcelona.
