This is what our students say about Sinfonia...

"The environment is supportive of musical development rather than just competitive. It's great for learning."

"I was nervous that I wouldn’t fit in. You’ve helped me grow into a more confident, mature player."


Auditions and rehearsals take place at:
   Howard Center for the Arts
    1212 Wood St, Philadelphia 19107

Philadelphia Sinfonia is easily accessible by transportation: 
We are half a mile from all Septa Regional Rail lines and the PATCO high speed line,
