This weekend the Sinfonia marked the beginning of it’s 2016/17 winter season with a remarkable set of concerts at Metro State and the Basilica. Highlights included Rachel Lee Priday performing a Conus violin concerto, and the premiere of a new work in memory of Jacqui Gardner. Join us Dec 2nd and 3rd for Holiday Celebration!
