LOCAL music teachers Alison Young (saxophone) and Alex Davies (organ/piano) will be playing a short recital in aid of the Lyme Regis organ appeal, this weekend.

They are both graduates of Trinity College of Music but some of their earliest musical experiences were whilst in the choir at St Michael's church in the 1980s.

Alison currently teaches saxophone privately and at the Woodroffe School, where she runs the successful sax choir.

She also directs "Saxminster", a popular choir of adult saxophonists and the Honiton music company.

A skilled local gigging musician, she mixes a great flare for improvisation and jazz with classical music.

The combination of soprano and alto saxophone, and organ is startlingly effective and becoming increasingly popular. At this concert they will be playing arrangements of Marcello's Oboe concerto with organ, Gabriel's Oboe from the Mission by Marconi, and modern sax concert repertoire, including composers Nigel Wood, Chick Corea.

There will be a retiring collection in aid of the St Michael's Church Organ Appeal.

The event is set to take place on Sunday, July 26, at 3.30pm. at St Michael's Parish Church, Lyme Regis.

Refreshements will be served after the performance.
