Having postponed its annual concert in Exeter Cathedral last July due to Covid, the Amadeus Orchestra is delighted to announce that it will now take place in July 2021. Principal conductor Philip Mackenzie says: “As an orchestra, we have been silent since February 2020 when we performed in the House of Commons and we are very excited by the prospect of performing once again. It is very fitting that our first post-Covid concert will be held in Exeter Cathedral as this is the city where the orchestra was founded in 1990.” The orchestra is well known in Exeter and performs in the Cathedral every summer.

The orchestra will perform a swashbuckling selection of pieces: music from the film Pirates of the Caribbean, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances and Lutoslawski’s Variations on a Theme of Paganini.

The soloist for the Lutoslawski is Malcolm Forbes-Peckham who is also no stranger to Exeter audiences, having recently performed Mozart’s Double Piano Concerto and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue in the city.

After more than a year with no live performances, and with the vaccine programme almost complete, we are anticipating a full house and that the atmosphere in the Cathedral that evening will be highly charged. It will be an evening to remember for orchestra and audience alike.
