THE Westmorland Youth Orchestra takes its audience on a journey into the world of gaming at its next concert at Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale, on March 7.

From Tetris and Pong to Super Mario and Halo, WYO explores a wide range of video game music from the 1970s to the present day. The programme also includes trumpet and trombone concertos by Rimsky Korsakov with soloists Zoe Lovell and Rosemary Kelly, and the Harry Potter Suite with music by John Williams. Whether or not you are a serious gamer, this concert promises to have something for everyone! Tickets (£10, £8 concessions, £2 students) are available on the door.

ON March 5, flute players, teachers, The Cumbria Music Hub and local groups are all coming together at the Town Hall in Kendal for workshops, discussions and performances alongside one of the world’s most famous flautists – Stephen Clark.

In collaboration with Just Flutes (London’s premiere flute retailer) and Yamaha Music, 120 young children who participate Cumbria Music Hub’s First Access programme in primary schools across the South Lakes, will be taking part in afternoon workshops. Later in the day, amateur flautists will be joining together for a public event for all ages and abilities. Many local teachers and the popular ‘Flutes and Co’ flute ensemble who rehearse every week in Kendal will be present on the day.
