LUUMS Sinfonia 2023/24

Sinfonia es una orquesta no audicionada, abierta a músicos de todos los niveles, desde principiantes hasta avanzados. Con un ambiente muy relajado y divertido, es perfecto para el músico que busca un ambiente amigable para tocar buena música con otras personas. Nuestro repertorio emocionante y diverso abarca una amplia gama de estilos y géneros, incluidas piezas clásicas, partituras de películas, teatro musical y popurrí pop. Los ensayos se llevan a cabo todos los lunes en la Sala de Ensayos del Departamento de Música. Después de cada ensayo vamos al Old Bar, y con muchos eventos sociales de Sinfonia como boliche, laser tag y viajes al cine, hay muchas oportunidades para que conozcas a tus compañeros de juego.

Debido a la situación con respecto a la pandemia de Covid-19, actualmente no estamos seguros de cuándo comenzarán los ensayos en el año académico 2020/21. ¡Asegúrate de unirte a nuestro grupo de Facebook para recibir actualizaciones sobre ensayos y eventos sociales! También habrá algunas redes sociales en línea de Sinfonia y LUUMS más amplias para que te involucres. ¡Esperamos contar con su presencia!

Únase a nuestro grupo de Facebook para más información.

Lunes 7.30pm - 9.30pm

 Olivia Davies (she/her)

Conductor

Livia is in her fourth year at Leeds studying Arabic and International Relations. She started learning the violin at age 7 but switched to the cello at 11 when she moved to France, which she’s stayed loyal to. She also started taking guitar lessons at 14. Livia joined her town conservatoire orchestra at age 10, and also performed in chamber music groups from the age of 14. At her conservatoire she also played alongside theatre productions and performed solo from a young age. During summer music camps, she performed in string ensembles, vocal groups, composer ensembles, rock bands and a full orchestra. She played electric guitar in a rock/pop band from age 16-18 and performed at several local concerts and festivals. In 2018, Livia switched to study at her neighbouring town’s conservatoire where she played in their orchestra, solo, and in several string ensembles. While studying here, she played in her orchestra alongside a visiting Ukrainian choir, performing both Ukrainian dances and traditional French songs. Livia has only been part of Sinfonia for a year because of COVID and her year abroad but is really looking forward to being co-conductor alongside El!

Emily Mosby (she/her)

Manager

Emily Mosby is a 3rd year student at the University of Leeds studying Mathematics and Music. She has just completed her year abroad in Waterloo, Ontario, in Canada, and is back in Leeds this September for her final year. She started playing the cello in primary school when she was around 8 years old, and picked up other instruments along the way including the keyboard, drum kit and has experimented with the violin and guitar too. At 9 years old, she joined a children’s orchestra in her home town, and after each cello exam she sat, she moved up a group until she was a member of the top youth orchestra of the area at 13 years old. She was part of this orchestra up until she turned 18 and loved everything about it including the people and of course, the pieces. Emily was a member of Sinfonia in her second year at the University of Leeds, and now she’s back for her final year, she’s super excited to be a manager this year, alongside her co-manager Jonathan Nicholls!

Jonathan Nicholls (he/him)

Manager

Jonathan is a computer science student at the University of Leeds currently on his placement year as a trainee information analyst with the NHS Harrogate & District trust. Born and raised in Hong Kong to British-Australian parents, he is an avid enjoyer of all sorts of music, and has been playing instruments ever since the age of 4. He is principally a violist, but can also play piano, violin, guitar, recorder and french horn, and used to sing as part of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Boys’ Choir. Jonathan has performed with various ensembles throughout the years, including his primary school and secondary school’s orchestras, as well as playing viola with the English School Foundation’s inter-school orchestra for the organisation’s 50th anniversary and performing in a concert celebrating the 130th anniversary of the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Medicine. Since joining LUUMS, he has been a member of both Sinfonia and String Orchestra, and went on tour with the Symphony Orchestra during their 2023 Belgium tour. In his spare time (of which he has very little), Jonathan enjoys watching movies, listening to as much indie and alternative music as he can find, and is a first aider with St. John Ambulance. Jonathan is looking forward to managing Sinfonia this year and getting to know all the new students joining us this year, and he hopes to ensure a welcoming atmosphere within the ensemble for people of all skill levels, giving all a safe space to have fun playing music!
