Sinsontes & Friends

Group type: Chamber choirs

Part of the Classical Sheffield Weekend 2023

Sinsontes are a sixteen person group with a passion for singing four-part works in Spanish, and occasionally Latin and Catalan.

The name 'Sinsontes' derives from the native Mexican name for the famously melodious mockingbird mentioned in one of our songs.

Sinsontes repertoire, inspired by its roots in Sheffield University’s Spanish Department Choir and the Socialist Choir’s links with Cuban music festivals, embraces the whole of the Spanish-speaking world with particular focus on 15th/16th century Spain and modern Cuba.

Sinsontes are thrilled to continue their year on year involvement in Classical Sheffield’s Festivals.
