Oxford University Sinfonietta is a chamber orchestra that has traditionally consisted of the university’s finest instrumentalists. They specialise in performances of little-known and unexplored repertoire, in particular contemporary and early music.
The group is unique in the sense that it varies in number from term to term, allowing OUSinf to appear both as a small ensemble, and as a fully fledged chamber orchestra. This means that they are able to perform a vast range of repertoire, from Vivaldi and Mozart to likes of Ligeti and Birtwistle.
