The Bournemouth Sinfonietta was founded in 1970 to complement the work of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. In its first 25 years it has established a reputation across the country for being both a fine small scale orchestra as well as one of the most versatile ensembles of its type.

Led by internationally acclaimed pianist and conductor Tamas Vasary, the Sinfonietta regularly gives concerts across the South and West as well as travelling further afield. In 1995 the orchestra toured Spain and Brazil.

In addition to concert and recording work with many of the finest artists on the international circuit, the Sinfonietta has rapidly been at the forefront of developments in the sphere of community and education work. The winner of a Sainsbury's Art for All Award in 1995, the Sinfonietta has pioneered the concept of Community Music residencies, where during a concentrated period, musicians from the orchestra work either in ensemble or separately taking music to communities not normally in receipt of visits by professional musicians. Residencies in Cornwall and Devon are followed in June 1996 by an extended visit to the West Wiltshire region.

Recent recordings by the Sinfonietta have features the works of Mozart, Stravinsky and Arvo Pärt.
