Great Start to Our 26th Season

We’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who came out this weekend to support the Sinfonia and enjoy the first concert of our 26th season!

Anna Polonsky’s performances Friday night and Sunday afternoon were beautiful. We are so grateful to have amazingly talented friends like her! We hope you enjoyed Ms. Polonsky’s performance and can’t wait for the rest of our 26th season including return performances from Maria Jette, soprano, Alexander Fiterstein, clarinet, and Inna Faliks, piano, as well as a first time performance from Eric Silberger, violin.

We’d also like to thank everyone who joined us for SINFONIAFEST at the Summit Brewery’s Brew Hall & Tap Room on Saturday evening.
