The Venue is the newest addition to performing arts and theatre in Milton Keynes. Situated in the South East of Milton Keynes near Central Milton Keynes, and close to the M1, The Venue is set to become a landmark within Milton Keynes and the surrounding area, supporting both community, professional and corporate use.
The Venue is thrilled to welcome back the Milton Keynes City Orchestra for another exciting season. Featuring a stunning mix of musicians, conductors and soloists presenting the finest orchestral music in the city, these are events not to be missed! Under the leadership of new Music Director Damian Iorio the Orchestra presents a season featuring much loved pieces from composers including Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.

Conductor - Hilary Davan Wetton
Soloists - Ileana and Gillian Tingay
Hilary Davan Wetton, Founder and Vice President of Milton Keynes City Orchestra, returns to conduct the orchestra at The Venue. He has chosen a repertoire that not only answers the core music theme of the season but continues to surprise, with Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto, not heard in Milton Keynes for well over a decade. Ileana Ruheman and Gillian Tingay work together frequently and this Concerto is a signature piece for them to perform. Both soloists have brilliant careers in their own right and are internationally famous.
Haydn - Sympony 88
Mozart - Flute and Harp Concerto
Honegger - Pastorale d'Ete
Beethoven - Symphony 4 in B Flat
