Welcome to Balmain Sinfonia

The Balmain Sinfonia

Balmain Sinfonia is a Sydney-based symphony orchestra. Our aim is to bring high quality orchestral music to the community at affordable prices. Many gifted players, amateurs and professionals, give freely of their time to achieve this aim.

The orchestra generally plays music from the mainstream repertoire. However, we’re also known to throw in a few surprises to keep things lively and interesting!

We play our concerts at the Salvation Army Congress Hall in Sydney. The venue is very close to Museum station. We hope you can come and enjoy one of our shows soon!

Our Conductor and Musical Director is Monica Buckland. She arrived in Australia in 2020 after forging a distinguished career as a conductor in Switzerland, Germany and the UK.

The Balmain Sinfonia are in the midst of a program of 5 concerts over 2022. See the ‘concerts’ section for more details.

We are often looking for talented musicians to join us. At the moment, we are especially interested to hear from violin, viola & double bass players. If you have orchestral experience and can play at at least at a Grade 7 level, then get in touch with us at thebalmainsinfonia@gmail.com. We are a friendly and enthusiastic group who rehearse on Sunday evenings in Balmain.
