Beethoven's mighty Eroica Symphony will be performed at a special gala concert to mark the return of Bishop's Stortford Sinfonia.

The orchestra is staging its first concert since 2020 at St John's Church in Stansted on Saturday May 21.

Beethoven's great symphonic masterpiece was performed at the orchestra's launch concert in 2015, so it will be a fitting way for the musicians, led by internationally renowned conductor Rebecca Miller, to celebrate their return.

The symphony will be the centrepiece of a programme of evergreen classics that will also include Tom Caldecote as soloist in Mozart's much-loved Clarinet Concerto, and Elgar's gorgeous Serenade for Strings.

"Bishop's Stortford Sinfonia is truly excited to be back performing in the Bishop's Stortford area and looks forward to seeing both old and new friends for this concert," said new artistic director Tanya Barringer.

"The past few years dealing with the Covid pandemic has been difficult for so many musicians. We're pleased to return under the energetic guidance of Rebecca Miller with so many of our outstanding musicians and to continue bringing high-quality and accessible music to the area."
