Saturday 18 March
Civic Theatre

The acclaimed ‘Orchestra of The Swan’ will be performing at the Civic Theatre on Saturday 18 March as part of the M&G Classical Concert Series.

The Stratford-upon-Avon based chamber orchestra have toured the world, and have visited China, Mexico and the USA – including a concert at Carnegie Hall in New York and have played with rock acts such as James and Steve Harley.

The Orchestra will be conducted by David Curtis and will feature four horns which are usually associated with full symphony orchestras. The programme will feature Hayden’s Symphony No. 59 in A major ‘Fire Symphony’, Shostakovich Piano Concerto No.2 and Mozart’s Symphony No.25 in G minor. For the Shostakovich piece the orchestra will feature soloist Peter Donohoe on piano.

There will be a pre-concert talk before the concert at 6.30pm, which is free to concert ticket holders.

To book tickets to see ‘Orchestra of The Swan’, visit or call the Box Office on 01245 606505. Tickets range from £25 to £14.50. Under 16s tickets are £7.

There will also be a relaxed concert at noon, which will be suitable for families and will be autism friendly where the audience can move, dance, sing or listen. The one hour concert will feature The Lion King, the Sailors Hornpipe and the William Tell Overture. Tickets are £8 with a free ticket for a carer.
