Renowned orchestra Manchester Camerata make a welcome return to Withernsea High School this February as part of East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Classically Yours programme. 

The concert on Friday, 18 February at 6.30pm will be a packed programme from Manchester Camerata and will also feature performances from the local community. 

Withernsea Ladies Choir will perform live for the first time 'Unlocked Voices', a piece they worked on with Manchester Camerata during lockdown.  Withernsea High School also feature in the programme with music, vocals and a specially choreographed piece of dance. 

Robert Guy, conductor, Manchester Camerata, said :  "Our projects in Withernsea have certainly helped me realise why I do what I do. I have been humbled to witness the impact live music and creativity can have on children, young people, parents, teachers and the elderly. These projects prove what is possible when someone is given the chance. We have opened minds and I am proud to have been part of it. I'm looking forward to returning to Withernsea."

Tickets for the concert are on sale at Withernsea Library and from Bridlington Spa Box Office https://www.bridspa.com/events/?entry=spx_328603 priced £8.
