The Piccadilly Sinfonietta is one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles.

The Piccadilly Sinfonietta exists to perform the world’s greatest classical music in the UK’s most historic venues.

Award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren Mailley-Smith, recently became the first British pianist to perform Chopin’s complete works from memory.
