Sinfonia Toronto

Acclaimed as "A World-Class Ensemble" (headline, Russelsheimer Echo, Germany), Sinfonia  Toronto is one of Canada's finest chamber orchestras. The orchestra performs its Masterpiece  Series in two of Toronto's favourite concert halls, Glenn Gould Studio - where many of its concerts  have been recorded for national broadcast - and the George Weston Recital Hall at the Toronto  Centre for the Arts.    

Sinfonia Toronto consists of thirteen string virtuosos. 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 Baroque  through classical, romantic and 20th-Century works. Sinfonia Toronto has premiered many new  works, and has been recognized by the Canada Council for its commitment to performing music  by Canadian composers.   

Sinfonia Toronto's first international tour in 2008 in Germany was a resounding success, resulting  in reviews with headlines such as ''A World-Class Ensemble,'' ''Sinfonia Toronto Inspires,'' and  ''Sinfonia Toronto Thrilled the Audience.'' The orchestra's two-week tour of Spain in October 2010  was greeted with calls for encores at each performance, including the thrilling four encores  demanded by the audience in Barcelona.    Sinfonia Toronto is Orchestra-in-Residence of the Colours of Music Festival in Barrie, performs  regularly in many other Ontario cities, and last season received several standing ovations at Montreal's Place des Arts.   

Music Director Nurhan Arman brings a wealth of international experience to the Sinfonia Toronto  podium. He has appeared in Armenia, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany,  Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia,  Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Ukraine, Turkey and throughout the United States and Canada.   

Sinfonia Toronto's many recordings are heard across Canada and beyond in a wide range of  styles. Its CD of music by Mendelssohn, Khachaturian and Shostakovich is broadcast frequently  on classical radio stations throughout Canada.

The orchestra's world premiere of the rediscovered  Bach aria 'Alles Mit Gott' was recorded by Analekta and released on iTunes. The title work on the  orchestra's Marquis Classics CD of music by Canadian composer John Burge, Flanders Fields  Reflections, won the 2009 JUNO Award for Best Recording of a New Classical Work. The  Hollywood Flute CD, and the orchestra's most recent CD, Premieres, were both been released by  Cambria and are distributed by Naxos.
