The exciting new partnership between Worcester Live and the ESO takes flight with this concert celebrating the marriage of word and music.

Walton’s wacky and whimsical theatrical diversion Façade forms the heart of this evening with the English Symphony Orchestra hosted by Worcester’s leading man of the theatre, Ben Humphrey. It’s a singing and dancing musical celebration of humour and eccentricity, ranging from the theme tune to Poirot to Noel Coward’s Mad Dogs and Englishman. Hailed as the International Orchestra of Elgar Country, the ESO is fast becoming recognised as one of the UK’s most innovative and virtuosic ensembles.
