Claire Marie Haynes

This coming Saturday offers a 'not to be missed' musical delight.

Friends of St Mary's Church (FOSM) are hosting their fifth Youth Music Festival in St Mary's Church on Saturday 4th March, starting at 2.30pm, to showcase young local musical talent.

It is an entertaining afternoon in an informal atmosphere and gives young instrumentalists and singers an opportunity to perform for appreciative friends and families.

The compere for the event will be Claire Marie Haynes, an outstandingly talented harpist. Having trained to Conservatoire level, Claire is a professional, highly experienced Harpist who is an exceptional soloist and will be drawing on that experience to offer the young performers on Saturday some helpful tips and feedback.

After the refreshments (tea, squash and homemade cakes), the organisers are hoping that Claire will be able to hold a short masterclass with a few of the more advanced performers. Audience members are invited to remain and listen to this as well.

Tickets are priced at £5 for adults and £1 for children, excluding performers, or £10 for a family of two adults and up to three children. These and may be obtained from the HStM School office, Jenny Hardy (Tel: 291173), Tricia Stradling (Tel: 291607) or at the door.

The concert is in aid of Friends of St Mary's, which raises funds for the restoration and essential maintenance work on the church building.
