SINFONIA was founded in 1970 by Neil Mantle and has to date performed over two hundred concerts. It has a basic playing strength of ninety, augmented or diminished as required. The orchestra is a highly successful mixture of professional players, instrumental teachers and amateurs with an age range of seventeen to seventy, all united in one common aim: to make music to the highest standard of which they are capable.

Born in 1976, ROBIN MICHAEL studied at the Royal Academy of Music. Following a critically acclaimed South Bank recital debut in 2003, he has been much in demand as soloist and chamber musician. Robin is principal cello of the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique and regular guest principal of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, English Baroque Soloists, Academy of Ancient Music and Soloists of Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
