Orchestra of the Swan returns to Warwick Schools Foundation!

Orchestra of the Swan returns to Warwick Schools Foundation for a new season – and you get 10% discount if you book all three concerts.

Following on from the success of last season, all schools in the Foundation are excited to continue our innovative partnership with Orchestra of the Swan.

Last year we welcomed concert-goers, local children, public figures, and aspiring musicians, to name a few, into the Warwick Hall for four successful concerts. We were blown away by guest conductors Michael Collins, Rebecca Miller and Gerry Cornelius, along with soloists Corey Cerovsek, Roderick Williams, Aaron Akugbo and Zeb Stoanes.

But beyond spell-binding performances, the residency also saw 112 professional Swan players mentoring and delivering workshops to Foundation pupils, as well as opening all rehearsals to any Warwickshire pupils wishing to attend.

We are delighted to be offering three more concerts at Warwick Hall for the upcoming season; representing the continuation of a unique and valuable orchestral experience here at the Warwick Schools Foundation Warwick Campus.
