MUSIC lovers were treated to a concert to help raise cash for a local foundation that helps young musicians to develop their skills.

The Zephyr Double Wind Quintet and The Portsmouth Consort performed free of charge at the Music And Madrigals For May concert at St Mary’s Church in Fratton Road, Fratton.

Funds raised from a collection at the event on Sunday are to be donated to the St Mary’s Music Foundation.

It was founded to give local children who might not otherwise have the chance an opportunity to learn the piano, organ or singing free of charge in return for singing in St Mary’s choir.

It also gives children who take part the chance to perform with the choir in concerts, with costs subsidised by the Music Foundation.
