Ivybridge Community Orchestra presents ‘Music for Midsummer’
Modbury Memorial Hall
Saturday June 23, at 2.30pm
Ivybridge Community Orchestra are coached and conducted by local musician, Ian Hiscock, who, with a wide range of experience as a music teacher, is the ideal person to lead this enthusiastic ensemble.
Ivybridge Community Orchestra is made up of local retired and semi-retired people, all of whom meet together for the sheer joy of playing. Not only do they set high standards for themselves, but they also have a truly diverse repertoire.
This event, for example, features such delights as Haydn’s Toy Symphony, a Suite of Folk Songs, as well as pieces by Benjamin Britten, Handel, and Offenbach.
Spokesperson Graham Searle said: ‘Why not come along and sample the musical delights of the season, as well as a chance to relax and help support live music in the area.”
Admission is free; with a retiring collection. Refreshments are available.
