About Us

About us

Founded in 1999, SINFONIA MOSAIC is a colorful and vibrant ensemble dedicated to present young and talented musicians in concerts. With Herbert Tsang as its artistic director and conductor, this Vancouver based ensemble primarily consists of string musicians and is augmented by other artists as the repertoire demands.

Committed to the goal of providing Canada with a world class chamber orchestra, SINFONIA MOSAIC is an ensemble of artistic excellence, providing stimulating program and memorable performances. In programming its concerts, SINFONIA MOSAIC strives to balance masterpieces of the standard repertoire with contemporary or little-known works for chamber orchestra. Each concert provides an opportunity to explore the work of a Canadian composer, in an attempt to broaden both the musicians and the audience's experience of Canadian music. It is our plan to commission new works for our future concerts in order to bring together outstanding young professional musicians and emerging Canadian composers.
