Conductor: Spencer Down

Ten years after Docklands Sinfonia was first formed, the orchestra hosts this celebratory concert at its home in St Anne's Limehouse - featuring familiar friends and pieces of work.

The concert opens with the first piece ever performed by the orchestra - Machination - which was composed by Andy Keenan to mark the formation of the orchestra. It is followed by Prokofiev's spectacular Romeo & Juliet, starring children's author and illustrator James Mayhew who will paint and narrate live on stage to the music. 

The evening will end with a rousing performance of Tchaikovsky's 5th symphony, which closed the first concert ever performed by Docklands Sinfonia back in 2009. The evening will be a special celebration of the orchestra's achievements over a decade. 

Tickets, costing from £5 for children and £15.40  for adults, are available, from the Docklands Sinfonia box office. Or tickets can be purchased on the door for £18.
