YOUNG musicians will open Farlington Music Festival with their show Now That’s What I Call A Musical, Volume 2.

The performance on September 24 will be the first of eight over four consecutive weekends.

The event will also see Dr David Price, organist at Portsmouth’s Anglican Cathedral, give a concert, as well as shows from Maury Dean’s Big Band and Opera Comique which will perform Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe.

Local group Dragonfly will play adult-orientated rock covers by bands such as Dire Straits and Pink Floyd and Anemos will provide an afternoon of music written for a wind quintet. Virtuosa, a London-based female vocal ensemble that plays Italian Renaissance music accompanied by lute and harp, will perform.

The last show of the festival will be a selection of choral pieces by the choir of the Church of the Resurrection, directed by Brian North.

All concerts will be at the Church of the Resurrection, Penryn Avenue, Farlington, or St Andrew’s Church, Havant Road, Farlington. Prices are to be announced, and tickets are available at the parish office on (023) 9242 1849.
