Sinfonia Spirituosa

Lorna Peters, director
Sinfonia spirituosa is a chamber orchestra dedicated to presenting bold, historically-informed performances on period instruments. Through a vibrant and collegial exchange the group aspires to faithfully bring to life the broad spectrum of color, affect, and rhetoric in the music of the Baroque era, and to share their passion for performing this period’s extraordinary variety of repertoire with the diverse audiences of today. The members of Sinfonia spirituosa lead multi-faceted careers as university professors, recording artists, soloists, chamber musicians, and members of symphony orchestras. They are active as teachers and performers on both period and modern instruments, and many are directors of their own ensembles specializing in early music, Romantic music, new music, jazz, and gypsy swing.
