TEA WITH MANCHESTER CAMERATA: Thursday, 19 October, 2017 : 2pm : The Meridian Centre, Queen Street, Withernsea

What do you get when you mix some of the most loved pieces of classical music with “Probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra” (according to The Times)?
An opportunity to sit back, relax and take in classics with a twist – a great introduction for those new to classical music, as well as people who already have the classical bug.
Community arts officer June Mitchell said : “This event will be a chance to enjoy a special, world premiere performance of a new piece created by members of the local community and Withernsea High School in workshops with the orchestra, and afterwards enjoy a cup of tea while talking to the musicians.”
Tickets cost £6 and are available now from Withernsea Library, or call 01482 395320, or visit events.eastriding.gov.uk
The event is part of Classically Yours – one of the key events in the East Riding’s celebration of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 – which continues this autumn with more events across the area.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Orchestras Live have joined forces to bring orchestral music to venues across the East Riding.
Thanks to a grant from Arts Council England, and investment from the council – which is a Principal Partner in Hull 2017 – and Orchestras Live, Classically Yours will see some of the UK’s top orchestras, including Manchester Camerata, Sinfonia Viva and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, coming to the area.
