Orchestra of the Swan
About Orchestra of the Swan
The Orchestra of the Swan has performed all around the United Kingdom and beyond, often performing programs that mix newly commissioned works with music of the 20th century and standard repertory. Through concerts and multiple residencies, the orchestra has woven itself into the life of central England. The orchestra toured China in 2014, the U.S. and Mexico in 2017 and 2018, and performed at the Istanbul International Festival in 2016. A notable facet of the orchestra's activities has been its support of dementia care; since 2014, it has given more than 600 live performance workshops in care homes and dementia cafés. The orchestra has a strong commitment to new music, commissioning more than 70 works. The Orchestra of the Swan issued a world premiere cycle of the symphonies of Hans Gál. In 2021, the orchestra issued the album Vivaldi Sleep.
