Orchestra to perform Christmas concert 13 November 2007

THE Manx Youth Orchestra is preparing for its popular Christmas Festival Concert.

The concert takes place at the Villa Marina, Douglas, on Saturday, December 15, starting at 7.30pm.

Proceeds from the concert will be shared between the orchestra and the Isle of Man Children’s Centre. The Bank of Ireland and the Friends of the Manx Youth Orchestra are this year’s sponsors.

The event draws together the 200 musicians of the junior, intermediate and senior orchestra and the Manx Youth Guitar Ensemble. The programme includes traditional Christmas carols for audience and orchestra and a variety of music for large groups and smaller ensembles.

Leader of the senior orchestra is Philippa Bell.

The senior orchestra will be directed by Graham Kirkland, Head of Music Service for the Department of Education.

Tickets, priced £8 (circle), £7 (tiered stalls) and £6 (stalls), go on sale to the public from the Villa Marina box office on Monday, November 26.

The concert attracts a large audience so early booking is recommended.
