A CLASSICAL concert with a twist is to be held at Coventry Cathedral this Saturday (January 30), 6pm.

Though featuring the usual choral singing, the concert has been specially designed for GCSE and A-Level music students as they prepare for their 2016 exams.

Saint Michael’s singers will bring ‘Discover the Classics’ back to the stage with the second concert immediately after packed full of classical and secular favourites.

Discover the Classics is a concert of set works, developed in partnership with secondary school music teachers – covering AQA, Edexcel and OCR syllabi.

The concert will cover popular classics from West Side Story, The Planets and Wicked.

An event spokesperson said: “It will be a wonderful programme of music and we’re looking forward to welcoming the Warwickshire Symphony Orchestra and St Michael’s singers.

“The concert, conducted and presented by BBC’s Paul Leddington Wright, has been devised and inspired by the GCSE and A-Level music syllabuses.

“There is something for everyone and is set to be an exciting and diverse evening of music.”

Tickets are available for £15 – students can attend at half price and special school prices are available from www.ticketweb.co.uk or by calling 0844 477 1000.
