    Welcome to our new season, with great repertoire and top soloists! Our Venue concerts concentrate on the core chamber orchestra repertoire, with music by the greats – Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn – alongside music not often heard in Milton Keynes by Stravinsky, Chopin, Schumann and the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, one of the world’s greatest living composers. We also have a twist on the Four Seasons, with music by Piazzolla, the great Argentinean tango composer, complimenting Vivaldi’s masterpiece. We have three very different programmes at MK Theatre, covering opera, show music and symphonic repertoire.
    I’m very excited to perform alongside world class soloists from the UK and abroad and look forward to what will be an interesting and varied season. I’m very proud to be Music Director of this orchestra which is full of incredible musicians and which would make any city in the world proud. I also thank you all for your support and look forward to presenting each concert to you, our fantastic, enthusiastic and focused public!
