Orchestras combine for 'world tour' 21 June 2007

TWO orchestras are joining forces to take an audience on a musical journey around the world.

The Isle of Man Symphony Orchestra and the Manx Youth Orchestra are giving a joint concert – ‘Around the World in 80 Minutes’ – at the Villa Marina, Douglas, on Sunday, July 15.

More than 60 musicians have been rehearsing since Easter and will come under the joint batons of Isle of Man Symphony Orchestra conductor Maurice Powell and Department of Education Head of Music Service Graham Kirkland, who conducts the Manx Youth Orchestra.

It is the first time the orchestras have combined. The programme will include Copeland’s Hoe Down from ‘Rodeo’, Rossini’s ‘Italian Girl in Algiers’, Mussorgsky’s ‘Night on Bare Mountain’ and much more.

Broadcaster and musician Charles Guard will act as master of ceremonies. The event, in the Royal Hall, starts at 3pm and tickets, priced between £4 and £8, go on sale on Wednesday, June 27 via the Villa Marina box office.
