Conducted by Jonathan Trout, the concert features a double bill by the French composer Hector Berlioz, plus a popular 20th century flute concerto.

The three works to be played in the concert, which gets under way at 7.30pm, are Berlioz’s early work Les Francs-Juges Overture plus the spectacular piece that made his name, the Symphonie Fantastique.

Sandwiched in between is to be a performance of the Flute Concerto by the Danish composer Carl Nielsen, featuing Lucy McIntyre as the soloist.

Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions). Under 16s get in free with an adult.

They are available from Paynes the Chemist, Wirksworth, orchestra members and on the door.
