A music concert will be held at a secondary school next week.

West Mendip Orchestra’s summer concert will this 
year be performed at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form.

Their audience will be treated to a great evening or classical music.

An orchestra spokesman said: “Following his sparkling performance of Grieg’s concerto with the orchestra two years ago, we are delighted to welcome back the very talented young pianist Gus Tredwell to play Rachmaninov’s popular Piano Concerto Number 2.

“Our all Russian programme also includes Borodin’s evocative tone poem In The Steppes of Central Asia and Mussorgsky’s colourful and varied depiction in music of Pictures At An Exhibition.”

The concert is due to get underway at 7.30pm at the school, in Churchill Green, on June 29.

Tickets, priced £2-10, will 
be available to buy on the night.
