Orchestral music for the islands
This has just arrived in the inbox! What better way to celebrate the autumn than with a all-sorts concert.
On Sunday 7 October,Â the Community Orchestra will be travelling up to Mid Yell Leisure Centre to perform a Sunday afternoon concert for folk from the North Isles. Entry to this concert will be free,Â although there will be a box for donations at the door for those wishing to contribute to costs. Doors will open at 2 for a 2.30pm start and the programme is expected to run without a break for about an hour. No tickets are available for the concertÂ so audience members are advised to turn up in good time.
