An epic and personal spectacle made by six people of Cov, a local creative team and Orchestra of the Swan.

Six people of Coventry share with you the stories of who they are, supported by an original live composition played by the region’s most established chamber orchestra.

These proud Coventrians, either born in the city or who have made it their home, are teachers, are parents, are quietly changing the world. They are midwives, they are football fans, they are spiritualist ministers. They have experienced loss, they have experienced joy. They are a little part of ‘us’, a little segment of the people who contribute to this world but rarely get a live orchestra to sing their praises.

Join Orchestra of the Swan, Nor Aziz, Moz Baker, Duncan Brightside, Sam Collinge, Lynette Coulston, Daniel Fardon, Roze Navab and Paul O’Donnell for this epic and personal classical experience at Coventry Cathedral.

This is a unique theatrical symphony. It is a Symphony of Us.
