UK Tour

February 19-25, 2019

In February 2019, the Symphony Orchestra of India will make its debut in the UK with six concerts across five cities.

India’s growing appetite for western classical music has led many to forecast a coming age of rich cultural exchange and vigorous creative dialogue. The Symphony Orchestra of India, the sub-continent’s first and only professional orchestra, stands in the vanguard of institutions bringing symphonic repertoire to India while building bridges with classical artists and audiences worldwide. The SOI is ready to make history with its inaugural UK tour (Tuesday 19 to Monday 25 February 2019). The orchestra’s six-concert schedule comprises two dates at London’s Cadogan Hall and performances at Symphony Hall Birmingham, St David’s Hall Cardiff, G Live in Guildford and Edinburgh’s Usher Hall.

The Symphony Orchestra of India UK Tour is supported by the Tata Trusts.
