A world class children's choir is to perform at a concert in Southwold.

Southend Boys and Girls Choirs will perform at a concert, which is free to all, hosted by Southwold Town Mayor, Melanie Tucker later this month.

The concert is being held in aid of the nominated mayoral charities for this year- St Barnabas Care Home and the Southwold Music Trust, with money to be raised by a retiring collection

'We are delighted to welcome the Southend Choirs back to Southwold for the sixth time in as many years; their concerts are always a real inspiration.

'We hope this event will particularly inspire the increasing numbers of young musicians in our region, and show them what can be achieved by young talent,' said Town Mayor, Melanie Tucker.

She added: 'We have decided not to charge for this concert to make the finest music accessible to all members of our community, particularly families and those with young children, who are most welcome!'

Recent performances at the BBC Proms, St Peter's Basilica in Rome and St Martin in the Fields, alongside Aled Jones and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, has seen the choral ensemble's reputation grow with the national press describing them as 'heavenly'.
