CLASSICAL music favourite The Planets will be brought to life by the University of Chichester Symphony Orchestra later this month.
The orchestra’s rendition of Gustav Holst’s masterpiece will take centre stage at Chichester Cathedral on October 28, alongside the UK premier of a viola concerto by Thomas Schmidt Kowalski performed by internationally acclaimed soloist Emilian Dascal.
The concert is in aid of the Princess of Wales Regimental Charity, and Mr Dascal will dedicate his performance to the brave men and women of the regiment.
Crispin Ward, the university’s head of orchestral studies, said: ‘The standard of music making at the university has risen to such a high level in just a few years that students are coming here from across the World to be a part of these very special performances.
‘This looks like being a very exciting evening in aid of a very worthy charity.’
The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets ranging from £5 to £14 are available from chichestertickets.co.uk.
