Orchestral Series 2021-22
Hello and welcome back.
Tchaikovsky once said: “Truly there would be a reason to go mad were it not for music.” And I am sure you agree, in the last year, we have all lived through extraordinary times. After months of listening to birdsong through my windows, it will be a joy to be able to sit in the concert hall and listen to live orchestral music.
As we begin to unlock after the pandemic, Warwick Arts Centre is coming back bigger, better and bolder. We are ready to welcome all the people of Coventry, Warwickshire and further afield, with world-class music, art, film, dining and many improvements to our building and facilities.
Our mission is to bring you artistically brilliant classical music that engages with the challenges of our times and is yet an expression of our hope and optimism. Our new 2021-2022 Orchestral Series opens with the first of two visits from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and we will welcome back the Chineke! Orchestra and the Hallé Orchestra as part of our programme of the world’s finest orchestras, ensembles and musicians.
I hope you will find this year’s orchestral series both thought-provoking and enjoyable, and I look forward to welcoming you back this autumn.
