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, 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, 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 concert so audience members are advised to turn up in good time.
