The City of Peterborough Symphony Orchestra (CPSO) is set to return to its roots this summer with an evening of uplifting music. 

More than 30 years after it played its first concert, the CPSO summer concert will be held at Peterborough Cathedral on Saturday, June 22 at 7.00pm.

Joining the orchestra will be one of Europe’s most renowned and gifted pianists Katya Apekisheva who will be playing Piano Concerto No.2 by Rachmaninov, a romantic piece used in the movie “Brief Encounter”. 

Deirdre Culloty, Chair of CPSO, said: “We have planned a fantastic concert for our return to Peterborough Cathedral, incredibly it is almost 15 years since we last played at the venue.

"The programme of music chosen is joyful, majestic, and colourful – it feels appropriate in celebration of our return to where the orchestra first began 34 years ago.”

Conductor Bjorn Bantock will be leading the orchestra with further highlights to include:  Brahms' Academic Festival Overture and Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”.

Tickets are available now from the orchestra website or the Peterborough Cathedral box office.

Ticket prices range from £5.00 to £30.00 with concessions available.
