The London Mozart Players and the City of London Sinfonia will perform in two churches over the coming months, with works from the likes of JS Bach, Mendelssohn and Mozart on the programmes.
St Peter's, Sheringham, will be the venue for the London Mozart Players on Friday, March 9.
The evening will include Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in D minor along with works by Mozart, Shostakovich and Moore. The violin soloist will be Savitri Grier.
Tickets are £15, and children aged 16 and under can attend for free.
