Royal Northern Sinfonia, Orchestra of Sage Gateshead (RNS), is the UK’s only full-time chamber orchestra and has built a worldwide reputation through the quality of its music-making.

The orchestra flies the flag for the region at the Edinburgh Festival and the BBC Proms, appears frequently at venues and festivals in Europe, and has toured South America, China and South Korea. RNS has worked with conductors and soloists including Christian Tetzlaff, Olli Mustonen, Reinhard Goebel, Katrina Canellakis and Nicholas McGegan, collaborated with leading popular artists such as Sting, Ben Folds, John Grant and Mercury Rev, and commissioned new music by Benedict Mason, David Lang, John Casken and Kathryn Tickell.

RNS is actively involved in local communities and education, its players support young musicians through Sage Gateshead’s Centre for Advanced Training, and In Harmony—a long-term project in two local primary schools in which every child plays in an orchestra.
