On February 18 2017 the orchestra will be focussing on Mozart, performing his first symphony and his Symphony No. 41 'Jupiter', there will also be new music and new instsruments. Alongside the Mozart will be the world première of new work by David Roche, winner of Orion Composers’ Competition 2017-18. The competition was run in association with Dyson Ltd., and David Roche was commissioned to write a piece for orchestra and Dyson technologies. Roche's Acoustic Anatomies uses musical instruments invited by Dyson engineers; Roche has worked extensively with Dyson engineers at the company’s Malmesbury HQ throughout the creative process. 

The machines will also be demonstrated at the concert, let us hope that they sound as amazing as they look!
