Welcome to the North Downs Sinfonia

North Downs Sinfonia
We are an amateur symphony orchestra which plays a wide repertoire of orchestral music, with concerts twice a year at Tatsfield Village Hall, in Surrey.

Our next concert, on Saturday 10th November 2018, will be an all English affair. We're especially excited to be performing Holst's Suite de Ballet, for which we thank the The Holst Society for their help in making this possible.

The program will be:
Butterworth - A Shropshire Lad
Coates - London Suite
Vaughan Williams - Folk Song Suite
Elgar - Pomp and Circumstance March no. 4
Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending
Holst - Suite de Ballet
