It is not often that an entirely new orchestra is born, the the Tait Chamber Orchestra was created especially to support the Tait Trust's gala concert at St John's Smith Square on the 9th December.

The Tait Memorial Trust was founded in 1992 and is an organisation that supports, promotes, and acknowledges the achievements of Australian musicians and performing artists in the UK. As such, The Tait Chamber Orchestra is not only made up of musicians, but also dancers. Sophie Moffatt is a student from the Royal Ballet School, while Calvin Richardson was awarded by the institution for his choreography of The Dying Swan, which was performed at the Royal Opera House during the summer.

The Dying Swan will be performed again for the Tait Winter Prom, as well as Requiem, Pie Jesu solo. The musicians themselves will be playing work by Percy Grainger, Wolfgang Mozart's, Vaughan Williams, Giovanni Sollima, Kevin Penkin, and Giacomo Puccini.

Tickets are £15 - £35 and will end with the famous final scene from Act 1 of La Bohème sung by Jette Parker, Lauren Fagan, and Gerard Schneider.
