BLACKPOOL Symphony Orchestra presents a concert at the Blackpool Sixth Form College on Sunday at 7.30pm.

The season once again continues to centre on popular and well-known classical music with a programme of Wagner’s Grand March from Tannhauser, the Trumpet Concerto in Eb by Hummel and Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Song Suite.

The programme will end with Dvorak’s dramatic Symphony No. 9 in E minor From the New World, Op. 95.

Solo trumpeter, 18-year old Adam Stockbridge, comes from Skipton and has been playing trumpet for 10 years. Adam is at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester where he is now in his sixth year and will continue his studies this September at The Royal College of Music in London.

Adam is now co-principal trumpet of The National Youth Orchestra and he has played in many of the major concert venues in the United Kingdom under conductors including Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Mark Elder, Antonio Pappano, Vasily Petrenko and Semyon Bychkov.

Tickets will be available on the door at the Blackpool Old Road venue priced £7 including refreshments
