THE Amadeus Orchestra returns to Chipping Sodbury Town Hall as part of anniversary celebrations.

THE Amadeus Orchestra returns to Chipping Sodbury Town Hall as part of anniversary celebrations.

It will perform Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, featuring Clare King on the clarinet, and two pieces by Handel - his Water Music and Arrival of the Queen of Sheba - at a concert on Tuesday, October 10. 

The event marks the 70th anniversary of Chipping Sodbury Music Society, which has brought live music to the town over all those decades and built up an association with the Amadeus Orchestra since inviting it to perform in 2008 in St John the Baptist Church.

It has also organised visits to Wells Cathedral to hear the musicians play there. Having started in 1990, the Amadeus is one of the world's foremost training orchestras for young professionals and music students. Musicians who have trained with them have gone on to play in almost every major orchestra in the world.  

 Tickets for the concert cost £15 for adults - accompanied school-age children will be admitted free - and can be bought online at http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/csmusicsociety
