Sinfonietta Eisteddfod Successes!

Sinfonietta performing at the Gala concert earlier this year.

Great news for Trinity’s finest string group, Sinfonietta, for continuing their Eisteddfod successes by placing second in this year’s competition. A last-minute recorded entry of the Britten Elegy, which they later performed live to an even more spectacular level in the Gala concert, earned comments from the adjudicator, well respected conductor and repetiteur from Opera Australia, Simon Kenway such as “this is an extremely high level of musicianship on display”, ” the ending was thrilling” and “this group is superb and this is a credit to all involved and to the school… Bravi tutti”. High and well-deserved praise indeed!

We only hope that Sinfonietta can continue their run of success with a live performance at the Eisteddfod in 2022.
