Raise your glass and celebrate Symphony Hall’s coming of age with an unmissable selection of popular classics from our first 21 years of bringing great music to Birmingham.

Classic FM listeners can choose their favourite work to kick off a wonderful evening with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra including highlights from Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite, Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

Star cellist Julian Lloyd Webber performs Elgar’s moving Concerto as the highlight of the evening, and the explosive finale of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, complete with cannon effects and fireworks, provides a fitting climax.
