Milton Keynes City Orchestra will be in session at The Venue this Saturday evening.

This month, MKCO founder and vice president Hilary Davan Wetton (right) will return to conduct.

Apparently, “he has chosen a repertoire that not only answers the core music theme of the season, but continues to surprise”.

Works being played will include pieces by Haydn, Honegger and Beethoven.

Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp will be fronted by soloists Ileana Ruheman and Gillian Tingay.

Show time is 7.30pm. Book by visiting www.mkco.org
