Berks Sinfonietta is dedicated to fostering an inclusive musical environment that reflects the diverse Berks County community. We acknowledge and address the ongoing issues of race and gender inequality in our society. Through our music, we strive to challenge the traditional narrative of classical music being dominated by “dead white men.” We achieve this by promoting equal representation of composers from various backgrounds and expanding our outreach to talented musicians irrespective of their gender, ethnicity, or age.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Equality

We are committed to regularly featuring music composed by women, non-white individuals, and living composers. Additionally, we prioritize selecting musicians solely based on their talent, without any restrictions based on age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, or economic status.
