English String Orchestra Christmas Concert: English String Orchestra
"Now a regular fixture in the Artrix calendar, the English String Orchestra's Christmas concert will include our usual mix of seasonal music and, for the first time, a collaboration with Dance Students to bring a new dimension to the Christmas Celebrations.
The ESO will join forces with Penelope's Dance Studio (recently featured at Her Majesty's Theatre, London) in an evening's entertainment to lift the spirits."

The Worcestershire-based ESO was founded by conductor William Boughton as
the English String Orchestra in 1978. It soon earned an international reputation for performances of English music, made over fifty recordings and began touring regularly in Europe. Over time, the orchestra's repertoire expanded to include the full breadth of orchestral music and the ESO grew to become the English Symphony Orchestra. Ever since then, 'ESO' has served as an acronym with a dual meaning.
Conductor Vernon Handley succeeded William Boughton in 2007, and led the orchestra until his death in 2008. Over the years, the ESO has worked with a distinguished list of instrumentalists, composers and conductors, including Stephen Isserlis, Daniel Hope, Michael Tippett, Nicholas Maw and Yehudi Menhuin, who was appointed the ESO's Principal Guest Conductor in 1991, and led the orchestra on a number of international tours.
