St Andrew’s Church in Barnt Green (B45 8NR) will once again host the Sinfonia of Birmingham on Sat July 11 at 7.30pm for an evening of orchestral music.

Under the baton of Mike Seal, Assistant Conductor of the CBSO, the orchestra will play Haydn’s symphony The Clock, and Mozart’s Symphony no 39.

Talented young musician Jacqueline Martens (right) will make her debut with the Sinfonia playing Dvorak’s Violin Concerto. Jacqueline is a student at the Royal College of Music and studies with Maciej Rakowski.

Born in South Africa, she began playing the violin aged five, subsequently playing with the CBSO Youth Orchestra, and was also the young musician finalist with the Malvern-based Chandos orchestra.

The Sinfonia is one of the leading chamber orchestras in the West Midlands and performs regularly at the CBSO Centre as well as accompanying local choral societies.

Several Sinfonia players are from this area: clarinettists Bob and Tom Porter, Barnt Green cellist Olivia Goodborn and Cathy and Alastair Moseley, founder members of the Orchestra of St John.

Tickets for the Barnt Green Concert cost £10 (seniors £8, concessions £6 and under 12s free) and are available on 0121 447 7671, via or, if available, on the door – advance booking is strongly advised.
