Orchestral touch to latest Antony and Friends music date

THE next Antony and Friends informal concert takes place this weekend on Saturday, May 7 (7.30pm) at Central Methodist Church, Todmorden.

As usual the concert is hosted by Antony Brannick who also performs and on this occasion he will be joined by a group of string players who all have connections with Todmorden Orchestra. They are Catherine Skelcher, Paula Mayland and Bill Hunter (violins), Ken Tyler and Tim Benjamin (violas) and David Leys and David Foster (cellos).

While the programme will be announced on the night Antony says it’s clear that with these players there’s ample opportunity to hear the rich sound that a group of string instruments can make.

There is no admission charge but there is a retiring collection. Refreshments are provided.
