IWSO to play Medina Theatre this play

The Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra (IWSO) is set to return to the Medina Theatre in Newport this month for fans of classical music heading to the Isle of Wight.

Taking place on May 25th and getting underway from 19:15 BST, the show will feature performances of Benjamin Britten's Four Seasons, Mozart's Bassoon Concerto, the March & Scherzo from 'The Love of Three Oranges' by Sergei Prokofiev and Richard Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier Suite.

Soloist Christina Marroni will be taking centre stage for arguably the highlight of the evening during the Bassoon Concerto.

It follows the recent recital of Elgar's Sea Pictures and a number of works by Dvorak by the IWSO at the theatre in March, while the orchestra will be returning again on July 13th with renditions of works from Weber, Ponchielli, Delibes, Bliss and the Emperor Waltzes by Strauss.

Admission to the upcoming event will cost £13.50 for adults and £6 for students, with all of the pieces to be led by renowned conductor Stephen Anthony Brown.

Tickets can be purchased from the Medina Theatre box office or alternatively by heading online.

Individuals keen for a more contemporary musical experience while visiting the island in the coming weeks might also like to check out the Shhh… It's a Library Music Tour, which will be taking place at Ventnor Library on May 29th.

It promises to be a great day out for all the family, with performances by acoustic folk duo Chris Quinton and Ben Johnson, as well as Floella Grace and friends and bluesy indie rock and roll group PhreakAudio.

Entry is free and the show will get underway from 18:00, with visitors also set to be offered a range of refreshments. Guests are however urged to donate to the library, with all proceeds raised to be put towards its upkeep.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801581963-ADNFCR
