We create orchestral experiences of repertoire our audiences can’t find anywhere else. We perform new works envisioned for Symphonova unique capabilities and promote high quality but forgotten repertoire. Depending on the venue and musical context, we use either the MicroSymphonova or Symphonova Orchestra to create fully immersive and emotionally meaningful symphonic experiences for our audiences.
Our newest development is the MicroSymphonova – a new and powerful way for creating the richness of an orchestral experience. Using our Espressivo software, conductor Shelley Katz shapes nuanced musical expression in the real time of the performance, while audiences are immersed in full orchestral sound created by Symphonova Versatile Acoustic System. With exciting soloists added to the mix, audiences have unique and memorable experiences.
As part of the Awakening Suppressed Music initiative, Shelley Katz will lead the MicroSymphonova in a series of recordings and performances of suppressed orchestral scores published by Donemus. The series will be launched in April 2024 and we are excited about bringing to our audiences’ awareness this engaging music that otherwise will be lost forever.
The MicroSymphonova captures the imagination of forward-looking creators who are thrilled writing music with MicroSymphonova unique capabilities in mind. The premiere of a new work for Joe Kraemer will take place in London in April 2024.

Led by Shelley Katz, the Symphonova Orchestra consists of a small group of skilled and enthusiastic soloists, who share the vision to re-new the orchestral experience. The Orchestra specialises in performing repertoire that requires the biggest orchestras in small and remote venues. With its small-scale, the Symphonova Orchestra performs the major orchestral works with the intimacy, flexibility and freedom of expression of a chamber group. And the use of cutting-edge technology enhances the orchestra’s qualities of unity and accuracy.
In the last five years, the Symphonova Orchestra has been used in a series of road-tests, performing in numerous venues that couldn’t otherwise provide their audiences with the richness and power of the symphonic repertoire.
