Stratford-upon-Avon based Orchestra of the Swan (OOTS), artistic director David Curtis, has appointed the British/Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova as Resident Composer for 2014/16. Tabakova's appointment follows on from the tenure of composer Huw Watkins as Composeer-in-the-House with the orchestra.  OOTS already has a long standing relationship with Tabakova, having commissioned and performed a number of her works over the last 10 years.

She will compose new work for OOTS, including one inspired by The High Line in New York, which will receive its premiere on 29 May 2015 at Stratford ArtsHouse. Tabakova will also work with violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen to prepare new work for the Shakespeare 400 Anniversary in 2016.

The Orchestra of the Swan is resident at Stratford ArtsHouse, Stratford-upon-Avon and is an Associate Orchestra at the Town Hall, Birmingham.
