About Kensington Sinfonia
The Kensington Sinfonia was founded in 1988 by John Lowry, Associate Concertmaster of the Calgary Philharmonic, and freelance musicians. In 1993 Edmond Agopian was appointed Music Director of this unique professional ensemble in Calgary and served until 2006 when the position was given to Donovan Seidle. In 2018 we welcomed Laura Reid as our fourth music director and now are excited to welcome our dual Artistic Directors Andrea Case and Genevieve Micheletti. Kensington Sinfonia strives to break down the barriers between performers and audience by performing in unique and intimate venues. Our musicians interact with audience members before and after each performance and speaking about the music being performed. The ensemble regularly commissions new music from Western Canadian composers and collaborates with young musicians in Southern Alberta to help mentor the next generation of classical music performers.
