Sir Anthony Hopkins is set to make his U.K. debut as a composer when he unveils a new composition at a classical concert this summer.

"The Silence of the Lambs" star will present a brand new piece written for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) as well as several of his original scores at a show in Cardiff, Wales. He will also appear onstage to discuss his songwriting techniques with concert producer Tommy Pearson.

Sir Anthony says, "I am immensely happy to be working with the CBSO to bring my compositions to the U.K. for the first time. There are themes and passages in these pieces that have been several decades in the making and to bring them all vividly to life with one of the great symphony orchestras of the world is absolutely thrilling."

The CBSO will also perform numbers from the Oscar winner's most famous films, including "Shadowlands", "Remains of the Day" and "The Silence of the Lambs". Sir Anthony's concert will be held at St David's Hall in Cardiff on July 24. In 2008, the actor conducted members of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra as they performed a series of his works live.
