Exeter Leukaemia Fund is delighted to announce that the well known Isca Ensemble will be performing for the charity, in Honiton.

Directed by Roger Hendy, the orchestra will perform pieces by Corelli, Finzi, Mozart, Dag Wiren, and Schubert.

John Dalton, ELF Trustee, and music critic recommends this concert, to be given by one of the leading chamber orchestras in the South West, under its dynamic conductor Roger Hendy.

Mr Dalton said: "Made up of hand-picked players from the area, their concerts are always eagerly awaited. The programme for the Honiton concert will be particularly appealing, with Corelli's famous Christmas Concerto, and a performance with the brilliant clarinetist Chris Gradwell of the Concerto by English composer Gerald Finzi. Mozart will also be in the programme with his ever-popular Divertimento in F major.

Additionally, the concert provides a rare opportunity to hear Mahler's arrangement of the beautiful slow movement of Schubert's Death and the Maiden String Quartet."

Tickets, all unreserved, cost £8 for centre nave and £6 for side aisles, with accompanied children under 14 free.

The concert takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday, October 10, at St Paul's Church, Honiton.

Please call the ELF Office on (01392) 493344, or A Dimond & Co, Stationers, 74 High Street, Honiton (Opposite the Church), Tel: (01404) 42052, for advance tickets.
