Think orchestral music sounds good in a concert hall? Just wait until you hear the sumptuous sounds of Birmingham’s own symphony orchestra in the epic setting of Sutton Park! This summer, in a very special concert presented by Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council, the full CBSO will head outside to share a collection of some the finest tunes ever written for orchestra. Join us as the rousing, last-night-of-the-proms grandeur of Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 meets Ennio Morricone’s gorgeous, sweeping oboe solo from The Mission, and movie scores from Star Wars and Harry Potter sit side-by-side with favourites from the musical theatre stage, performed by the brilliant tenor Noah Stewart.

John Suchet: “I am lucky enough to be able to indulge my love of classical music on a daily basis and am thrilled to be hosting a concert with the world-class CBSO meaning I will be able to share my passion alongside what promises to be an amazing repertoire. Sutton Park is such an inspiring setting and it will be fantastic to be enjoying my favourite kind of music outdoors with a live audience, experiencing the music alongside them.”


“We are delighted to be working with Royal Sutton Town Council to bring our Orchestra to people of Sutton Coldfield and to play in the beautiful and historic setting of Sutton Park. Our Associate Conductor Michael Seal will lead the Orchestra. Recognised as one of today’s finest interpreters of British music and having worked with many of the UK’s top orchestras, Michael will bring the park alive with wonderful music including Rossini, Verdi, Elgar, John Williams and Puccini.”

Stephen Maddock OBE, Chief Executive
