Elgar's Sea Pictures to be performed on the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is to play host to the IW Symphony Orchestra's third annual concert series this year, with a performance of Elgar's Sea Pictures and a number of works by Dvorak to be showcased.

Set to take place at the Medina Theatre on March 16th, the concert is sure to be a crowd pleaser for lovers of classical music, with the IW Symphony Orchestra one of the best known non-professional orchestras on the island.

Conducted by Jonathan Butcher and joined by guest soloist Megan Quick, the orchestra is sure to provide music lovers with a fantastic night's entertainment, while Ms Quick will be showcasing a number of operatic roles that she is working on as part of her studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

The night's entertainment will conclude with a performance of Vaughan-Williams' Pastoral Symphony.

Admission will cost £13.50 for adults and £6.00 for students. The show will get underway at 19:15 GMT.

Earlier this year, the IW Symphony Orchestra welcomed renowned violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky, with the artist performing alongside the group in a range of numbers, including Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1 and Sibelius' atmospheric and enigmatic 5th Symphony.

Elsewhere, the third annual Pete Durham Musical Mash-Up will also be held this month at the Melbourne Ardenlea Hotel in Shanklin on March 15th.

This now annual tradition has helped to raise considerable funds for the local Earl Mountbatten Hospice and this year's event hopes to be no different.

Talented musician Paul Armfield will be taking to the stage at the hotel on the night, with guests being treated to live music, as well as a raffle and free dinner. The show is set to get underway from 19:15 GMT and admission will be free, although donations to the hospice will be warmly welcomed.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801554565-ADNFCR
