FOUR groups of talented musicians from across Gloucestershire will combine forces for a charity concert this weekend.

Music students from Churchdown School and Castle Hill Primary will join The Frampton Silver Band and The Wide Valley Singers for the event at Churchdown School in Gloucester on Saturday.

Money from the gig, which starts at 7.30pm, will be donated to Gloucestershire-based cancer charity LINC which support patients and their families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers.

Churchdown School will be providing individual and small groups of musicians and Castle Hill's fledgling choir will sing three songs on the night.
The Frampton Silver Band, no strangers to Churchdown residents, will bring their brand of traditional band music and the Wide Valley Singers, a 25-strong ladies choir will sing some songs from their shows, in addition to a selection of well-known favourites.

The evening is also expected to see all four choirs perform together with rousing renditions of classic songs.

Tim Evans, who has organised the event, said: "It should be a terrific evening.
"Choirs are so important to the fabric of the arts scene in Gloucestershire and getting four groups together for such a worthy cause goes to show the sense of community we have in the county.
"I'm very much looking forward to it and I know others that I've spoken to are very much of the same opinion."

Tickets for the event, sponsored by electrical contractors Clarkson Evans, of Staverton, are priced £2 for children and £5 for adults with additional donations for the charity welcome.

They can be purchased in advance by calling 07814 039232 and are also available on the door on the night.
