The ECO is one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras, having performed in more countries than any other orchestra and played with the world’s greatest musicians in its five decades of history. Over the years its soloists and conductors have included Vladimir Ashkenazy, Janet Baker, Daniel Barenboim, Benjamin Britten, Colin Davis, and many more. The ECO is delighted to have had as its Patron since 1977 the Prince of Wales, now HM King Charles III, and the orchestra has performed at many royal events for him and his family, including his 50th birthday Gala Concert.

For our concert the top string players of the ECO will be led by violinist Ofer Falk. Ofer frequently steps in as leader of the ECO and has also been leader of the Schidlof and Allegri Quartets.

This concert is kindly supported by a grant from the R C Sherriff Trust.
