Kew Sinfonia

Kew Sinfonia was founded twenty five years ago by a group of local music-lovers, prominent among them Antony and Marie-José Sadler, who felt that Kew should have its own orchestra. They approached Joseph Vandernoot, a well-known London conductor, and he responded with enthusiasm. The inaugural concert under his direction was given in December 1986. Since then the orchestra has given three or four concerts a year and has attracted a loyal and enthusiastic audience.
