What's On

Until the orchestra is able to welcome audiences back to the concert hall, we are going to be developing studio projects which facilitate the dissemination of new and innovative work, exploring different kinds of concert formats. Each project will be filmed for online distributionand recorded for commercial release in partnership with Wyastone Concert Hall and the Nimbus Foundation. We believe this moment gives us an opportunity to be really bold with our programming, and to encourage our audiences to engage with new repertoire and new programme formats without risk or cost.  Our goal in these concerts has been to create a series of exciting and entertaining programmes that no other orchestra could do.

Elgar Festival 2024 – Elgar’s Strings: Elgar’s Wartime Masterpiece at Worcester Guildhall

Our annual celebration of the unique and glorious tradition of British music for string orchestra, heard in the magnificent acoustic of Worcester Guildhall. Elgar’s lone String Quartet is a powerful example of Elgar’s mastery of the chamber music idiom, and his deep reverence for this most revered genre, particularly the legacy of Beethoven’s late string quartets. This version of the Quartet in its arrangement for full orchestra was heard at the inaugural Elgar Festival when David Matthews was the featured composer and has since been recorded by the English String Orchestra to international acclaim.
