Concert Series



Live orchestral music is back once again at Cheltenham Town Hall with our latest 7-concert series, running from November 2022 to May 2023 and featuring our familiar blend of popular UK orchestras and overseas visitors – this season from Belgium, Malta, Armenia and Sweden.

For those who relish the full, rich sound of the great romantic works composed between 1850 and 1950 there’s a huge box of treats, with works by Tchaikovsky, Franck, Rachmaninov, Khachaturian, Sibelius, Brahms, Grieg and Mahler. Every single concert features one or more of these romantic masters, so our 20%-off series ticket looks better value than ever before.

At the podium will be familiar Cheltenham favourites such as Kenneth Woods (with the ESO)    and Rimma Sushanskaya (with the NSO) alongside home-grown and international maestros, Jaime Martin, Sergey Smbatyan and Roberto Gonzalez-Monjas. Joining these brilliant conductors to bring some of the best-loved concertos in the repertoire to glorious life for town hall audiences will be an array of soloists, led by undoubtedly the foremost name on the list of global violin virtuosi right now – the Israeli superstar Maxim Vengerov. Welcoming Maxim to the Cheltenham series is a real coup for Cheltenham Town Hall, and one you’ll not want to miss, when he performs Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto with the Malta Philharmonic in December. Other outstanding soloists include Paul Lewis (Tchaikovsky’s monumental and ever-popular Piano Concerto No.1), Noriko Ogawa (Grieg’s Piano Concerto), plus more violin concertos from Chloe Hanslip (Mendelssohn), Nemanja Radulovic (Khachaturian) and Mathilde Midwinsky (Mozart). Truly, no shortage of phenomenal talent in that line-up.

As well as these highlights, there’s also our annual New Year Strauss Gala, plus such favourites as Rachmaninov’s 2nd Symphony, with its ever-popular slow-movement theme, the achingly-beautiful Spartacus Suite by Khachaturian, the thrills of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth and the majesty of Sibelius’s Fifth, plus symphonies by Mahler and Franck. All in all, it’s the usual intoxicating town hall blend of classical highlights, orchestral favourites and virtuosic performances…not to be missed.
