An evening of beautiful orchestral music, performed by some of London's most talented young professional musicians. Pianist Marc Corbett-Weaver joins the orchestra for Grieg’s only, and lastingly popular, piano concerto.

Marc Corbett-Weaver has performed in London, across the United Kingdom and in Italy, Greece and Austria. Marc is the founder and director of London Firebird Orchestra and the Orpheus Sinfonia.

London Firebird Orchestra is composed of talented players making the transition from one of the London music schools into the profession. Regular concerts take place at St George’s Hanover Square in Mayfair (Handel’s Church) and the orchestra has also performed at the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Kings Place, the Bath Pump Room, The Actors Church in Covent Garden and SJE Arts in Oxford.

Michael Thrift has been working with the London Firebird Orchestra since 2014. Originally from Australia, he studied composition alongside conducting at the University of Sydney and he has a particular focus on contemporary music and composers.
