The Kensington Sinfonia was founded in 1988 by John Lowry, Associate Concertmaster of the Calgary Philharmonic, and freelance musicians. In 1993 Edmond Agopian was appointed Music Director of this unique professional ensemble in Calgary, and served until 2006 when the position was given to Donovan Seidle.

Sinfonia’s programs cover a wide range of chamber music and string orchestra repertoire, from the Baroque to present day. Since its inception, it has frequently commissioned works by Calgary composers, as well as presenting the Calgary premieres of many Canadian compositions. The Sinfonia has been frequently broadcast on both regional and national CBC Radio programs. It’s debut recording “Views from the Americas”, recorded by CBC Radio, has also been broadcast often.

The musical intimacy between players and the audience is extremely important in Sinfonia’s performances. It is with this in mind that the Sinfonia chooses to perform at the wonderfully intimate and acoustically satisfying Hope Lutheran Church.

And of course, there is always a complimentary reception after each concert.
