Alpha & Omega is a concert series devised by Toby Purser and Orion Orchestra, exploring the first and last works of great composers.

The series began in February 2018 at Cadogan Hall, with a concert featuring Mozart's first and final symphonies, alongside a brand new composition by David Roche in collaboration with Dyson.
