Isle of Wight holiday can include orchestra performance

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays over the new year could attend a performance by some of the most talented musicians on the island during their stay.

On January 3rd 2010, the Isle of Wight Youth Symphony Orchestra will be taking to the stage at the Medina Theatre in Newport, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

The event, which is supported by the Isle of Wight Music Centre, will be conducted by Phil Chapman, who has stated his desire to have the youngsters play Mendelssohn's Wedding March on the night.

Staff at the centre give lessons to 3,000 island kids every week.

"The concert features seasonal favourites from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker suite to Viennese waltzes by Strauss, as well as symphonic music by Elgar and Schubert ... and selections from every child's favourite movie, Pirates of the Caribbean," noted the local news provider.

VentnorBlog recently reported that on January 4th 2011, the Isle of Wight Observatory is hosting a free stargazing event which ties in with a new BBC programme from Professor Brian Cox.
