Sinfonia Verdi

Sinfonia Verdi Sinfonia Verdi

Founded in 1990, Sinfonia Verdi gives vibrant and relevant concerts, workshops and events both in the community and for the corporate sector.

Based in Hertfordshire, just north of London in the UK, the orchestra has strong local roots. We are particularly lucky that some of the finest instrumentalists in the world happen to live in this region. Many of our acclaimed education projects have taken place in Hertfordshire schools and we have a close association with the magnificent Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban, its world-renown choirs and the St Albans International Organ Festival. From this Hertfordshire base we perform in London and throughout the UK, and internationally as far afield as India.

Founder and Artistic Director David Murphy is a pupil of Leon Barzin and protégé of Sir Charles Mackerras and Pandit Ravi Shankar. He conducts throughout the world. Recent highlights have included his critically acclaimed Royal Festival Hall debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Seoul National Symphony Orchestra (in a concert for peace broadcast simultaneously on Korean and Japanese television) and concerts and workshops with the children from the townships around Johannesburg.

Three unique strands of Sinfonia Verdi’s work have developed naturally over the years. The equal virtuosity our players have on both modern and period instruments developed in line with the Artistic Director’s use of original manuscript sources wherever possible, the orchestra’s groundbreaking work with Indian music began with our Premiere of Wajahat Khan’s Concerto for Sarod and Symphony Orchestra in 2001, and our pioneering education projects exploring the wonder of the natural world came about naturally as a result of a passion we all share.

We began working with the corporate sector in 2001, and enjoy giving business seminars and workshops exploring issues of leadership, cooperation, listening and teamwork through the medium of music. We also enjoy bringing to life gala events for the corporate sector, and our clients have included leading names in the corporate world such as the investment bank Goldman Sachs.
