The TSinf has been running for nearly 7 years now and is based in Thirsk and we are proud to be the first full sized orchestra (that we can find) in the market town. 
We have been successful in recruiting around 50 musicians from all over the North of England.

Thirsk Sinfonia aims to give both musicians performing and the audience a varied and challenging repertoire that will be interesting and enjoyable to all ages.


Repertoire and Programming

By forming the programmes from the suggestions of both musicians and the wider public, we aim to include works that will stretch the musicians abilities but that are also enjoyable for the audience to listen to.  We are keen to perform works that are less well-known and/or not often performed.  This may include music of other cultures or genres such as klezmer or jazz.  



We are aiming to give around three concerts per year in March, June and September in or around the Thirsk area. 



We recruit, wherever possible, from Thirsk and the surrounding areas although to retain the size and calibre of our musicians’ playing ability it is sometimes necessary to recruit from outside.
