Merton Council is giving music lovers everywhere the chance to purchase special early bird tickets for Classics in the Park. 10% off the original price is available until midnight on 31 July.

Wimbledon Park athletics stadium is all set to be transformed into a wonderful open air classical music venue on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 September 2015. The City of London Sinfonia, under the baton of Stuart Stratford, will perform a range of classical favourites for ‘Classics in the Park’. Performances start at 7.30pm and finish at 9.30pm.

The full programme is online and includes favourites such as Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Bach’s Air on a G String, Pachelbel’s Canon, Puccini’s O mio bambino caro and much more. A glittering fireworks finale will light up the late summer evening.

Leader of Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis, said: “For the City of London Sinfonia to play in Wimbledon Park is hugely exciting for us. It would be wonderful to see local people from Merton as well as people from further afield coming to SW19 for a fabulous evening of top quality music. I have already purchased my early bird ticket.”

Chief executive of City of London Sinfonia Matthew Swann said: “We are delighted to be taking part in Classics in the Park, performing some of the most-loved classical music in the wonderful surroundings of Wimbledon Park.”
