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.
