Music
Matters

Come and experience ground-breaking classics from the past and discover the classics of tomorrow, with Stratford upon Avon’s very own ‘Orchestra of the Swan’, or to our friends, ‘OOTS’.

Debussy and Rodrigo

An opportunity to commemorate the centenary of Debussy’s death (25 March 1918) with his enchanting ‘Children’s Corner’ and ‘Petite Suite’. Rodrigo’s Guitar Concerto is deservedly popular and we are joined by OOTS Associate Artist Pedro H. da Silva to perform this masterpiece. 17 April at Stratford ArtsHouse and 18 April at Town Hall Birmingham

Roderick Williams and English Song

Baritone Roderick needs little introduction and his performances of English music are greatly admired. Join OOTS and guest conductor Patrycja Pieczara on 6 April at Worcester Cathedral.

Magical Mozart

Join us for the fabulous concert with Emily Sun (violin), winner of the Bromsgrove Young Musician Competition 2017. Stacey Watton will be conducting Mozart Violin Concerto no5 & Symphony no29 at Number 8, Pershore on 20 April and Armscote Manor on 21 April.
