Sinfonia Cymru is seeking a new Chief Executive to take over leadership of the organisation from Peter Bellingham when he steps down at the end of September 2022. This is a brilliant opportunity to steer Sinfonia Cymru through the next phase of its development.
We like to do things differently. Sometimes we’re an orchestra in the traditional sense, ranging in scale from string ensemble to full symphony. At other times we work in much smaller groups, creating intimate performances in a range of styles. All our players are under 30 – the top young freelancers from across the UK – and we aim to give them the very best start to their careers. We give them a wide range of opportunities to develop their skills and musicianship, and our many player-led projects are central to our ethos. All this is for the benefit of audiences across Wales, who enjoy musical performances of the highest quality.
“There is an incredible culture at Sinfonia Cymru that exists across players and the management; everyone has a can-do attitude and a generous spirit. This has a direct and quite special effect on the music-making.” Caroline Pether, former Leader
The deadline for applications is 10 June 2022. See recruitment information pack for details of how to apply.

This is currently a full time role but we are open to proposals for both full and part-time arrangements.
