His Venetian Songs will be sung by renowned Indian tenor Anando Mukerjee (right), accompanied by the orchestra, all under the direction of conductor Richard Jenkinson.

There will be a free pre-concert talk for ticket holders with Ian Venables, presented by chief music critic of The Birmingham Post, Christopher Morley.

Tickets £12 in advance from Artrix box office or, or £14 on the door. Accompanied children attend free of charge.
