Sinfonietta is the VSO School of Music’s advanced string orchestra, directed by Carla Birston. A welcoming and collegial group of around 30 talented young musicians, the VSOSoM Sinfonietta plays in side-by-side and pre-concerts for the VSO; interacts with VSO guest artists and players; collaborates with other VSOSoM ensembles and soloists in departments such as Jazz & World Music; and performs 5-8 concerts annually in the local community.
Past highlights for the ensemble include:
- Guest coaching by Yo-Yo Ma
- Student Q&A with Itzhak Perlman
- Performing for 15,000 people at the VSO’s Symphony at Sunset
