The Arch Sinfonia was founded in 2012 by its dynamic young female Artistic Director and Conductor, Chloé van Soeterstède, actively supported by freshly graduated musicians from the four London music schools who, most of them have been playing in the orchestra since its creation. They are all passionately committed to chamber music, solo and orchestra performance, making the orchestra’s level very high. The chamber orchestra, through its dynamic structure aims to build different bridges between different arts (dance, science, opera, film etc), contemporary composers and emerging solo performers.
The name ‘Arch’ comes from the idea of a solid bridge between music college alumni and the professional music world: we have regular concerts where the players gets to explore different repertoire, building strength for their future. Since September 2014, we are Orchestre-in-Residence in SPECR concert serie (Earl’s court, London) where we play symphonic repertoire and aim to explore cross arts outside this residency. We would like, by being a flexible orchestra to explore new ways of involving the audience in our concerts.
From 2016, we will be inviting a few members of the audience to sit next a musician in the orchestra whenever the concert space allows it.
To enable the orchestra to develop on a long term, we warmly welcome private donations and sponsorship (see section ‘SUPPORT’).
NEXT CONCERT: Gala Finale at the SPECR concert serie, St philip’s church W8 6QH London
