“The Middle Tennessee Sinfonietta is a small, volunteer orchestra, dedicated to bringing music to the Middle Tennessee area. The orchestra was founded in January 2021 by current Music Director, Jeffrey Keever, with the purpose of providing and nurturing the musical and artistic environment throughout the Middle Tennessee area. The ‘Sinfonietta’ is an Italian term that describes a symphony orchestra that is of smaller scale. Derived from the term, the Middle Tennessee Sinfonietta is a smaller orchestra that is comprised of collegiate, graduate, and professional musicians that reside in Murfreesboro, Nashville, Smyrna, and other areas throughout Tennessee. The Middle Tennessee Sinfonietta strives to provide a professional musical experience to musicians who would not otherwise be able to participate in such an ensemble. The Middle Tennessee Sinfonietta is also committed to furthering the fine arts community throughout the Middle Tennessee area, and strives to bring together all areas of arts in each performance through collaboration.” – www.mtsinfonietta.com
