Music lovers can enjoy the music of Charlotte Ashton and William Vann.

Seaton Music will complete their successful 66th season with a concert by flautist Charlotte Ashton of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and prize-winning accompanist William Vann.

She graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in 2015, with a First Class Honours and the Principal’s Prize, where she learned flute with Karen Jones and Sam Coles and piccolo with Sophie Johnson and Helen Keen.

William Vann is a multiple prize-winning accompanist and accomplished choral and operatic conductor.

The concert is at 7.30pm in The Gateway, Seaton, on Thursday, March 22.

Tickets available on the door and from The Gateway box office.

The concert will be preceded by a short annual general meeting.
