Troy Story
The Orchestra of the Swan, artistic director David Curtis, has been awarded £50,000 by The Peoples' Millions, towards their education project Anthony and Cleopatra - The Musical! '60 minutes of madcap musical mayhem' written for the children from two special schools Welcombe Hills School in Stratford-upon-Avon and Brays School in Birminghan. Anthony and Cleopatra - The Musical! builds on the success of the Orchestra of the Swan's last education project Troy Story - An Intergalactic Adventure.

Stratford-upon-Avon based Orchestra of the Swan is having a busy time at the moment, they have just been into the studio with conductor Kenneth Woods to complete recording the first ever complete cycle of Hans Gal symphonies.

The Peoples' Millions is run by the Big Lottery Fund with ITV and gives grants of up to £50,000 to community projects, chosen by the public by telephone vote from a regional shortlist drawn up by the organisers.
