THE STORY:

Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra Association Inc wrote -

Jason Henderson wrote -

What is Sinfonia? It’s 1970 at the Portsmouth School of Art in England. There’s a flyer advertising a really unusual orchestra and inviting people to play. The entrance requirement? Players had to be either non-musicians, or if a musician, play an instrument that was entirely new to them. What started as a one-off, tongue-in-cheek performance art ensemble became a cultural phenomenon over the following ten years with concerts having a profound effect on thousands of concert goers throughout the community. As word of the Portsmouth Sinfonia grew in popularity, the comedic aspects brought international fame to the group resulting in concerts with thousands of tickets being sold, albums produced and even being featured on Monty Python’s CD, Dead Parrot Society. In 2015, the Fox Valley Sinfonia made its debut - the very first of its kind in the in the United States. Sinfonia’s maiden performance started a unique and powerful tradition which aims to bring educational opportunities that enhance the cultural development of our community in the spirit of the original Portsmouth Sinfonia. For our event, an orchestra of well-known community leaders and businesses have joined together from all over the Fox Cities area to take part in this truly unique, and personal musical experience. Now it’s your turn to be a part of the Fox Valley Sinfonia. Help support the Fox Valley Symphony and Youth Symphony Orchestra as our community players pick up an orchestral instrument for the first time, leave their comfort zone, and perform on March 11th, 2017 as Fox Valley Sinfonia 2017: Sinfonia Gets Romantic. Prepare Your Ears.
