Mornington Sinfonia is a friendly, welcoming orchestra in North London which is particularly suitable for intermediate players. We meet each Thursday evening during term time.

We're currently on our summer break, after a successful and fun end of term playthrough and party on 3 July 2014, and we're discussing what should be an exciting programme for the autumn (which will appear here when plans are more definite).

Dates for the autumn term are as follows:
First rehearsal: Thursday 25 September 2014
Half term: Thursday 30 October 2014: no rehearsal that day
Last session (and probable concert): Thursday 4 December 2014
