Orchestra of the Swan


Orchestra of the Swan was founded in 1995 and is based in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, with an annual programme of over 45 concerts throughout England and Wales.

OOTS also has an international impact having toured to China, Turkey, Mexico, USA and across the UK alongside groups such as Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel and James.

The OOTS catalogue of over 20 recordings features works by Bax, Copland, Elgar, Finzi, Ireland, Mahler, Strauss and Shostakovich, with the recording of the complete symphonies by Hans Gál receiving outstanding critical acclaim.

OOTS is passionate about promoting new music and has premiered more than 70 new works by composers including Joe Cutler, Tansy Davies, Joe Duddell, Alexander Goehr, Roxanna Panufnik, Joseph Phibbs, Dobrinka Tabakova, Errolyn Wallen, Huw Watkins, John Woolrich and many others.

OOTS has been enormously successful in making a positive and effective contribution to the communities at the heart of its ‘immersive residencies’, with an ambitious program of work in care homes, schools and rural areas growing year by year.

OOTS is proof that an orchestra really can be an indispensable and relevant part of the community with its aim to entertain, educate and engage in a way that truly makes it a living orchestra.
