Brecknock Sinfonia Trust was formed at an extraordinary general meeting of the Friends in 2018 and was formally registered with the Charity Commission in 2019, registration number 1183813. Prior to the Trust’s formation the orchestra existed as two almost separate entities: the Orchestra and the Friends and the aim of forming the trust was to put the organisation onto a more formal and sustainable basis for the future.
