The Michigan Sinfonietta, founded in 1988, is an orchestra comprised of some of the finest professional musicians in Mid-Michigan. The players share a vast wealth of experience in both chamber and symphonic music, as well as accompanying ballet, opera, and sacred and secular choral works.
In recent years the Michigan Sinfonietta has performed with the Ann Arbor Cantata Singers and the Ann Arbor Ballet Theatre, among others. The orchestra has performed in the Twice Festival of contemporary music and has been the orchestra in the pit for the hugely successful series of "silent" films at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. Numerous churches rely on the Sinfonietta for their presentations of choral works by the great masters.
