It will truly be music to the ears on May 27, when Launceston Philharmonic Orchestra showcases its ‘French Connections’ program at the City Baptist Church.

The 65-piece orchestra will treat its audience to a number of French classics alongside work “not often heard in the philharmonic repertoire”, orchestral manager Eamonn Seddon said.

The concert will bring together a number of players from across the state and Seddon is confident it will be a night to remember.

“Really the inspiration comes from finding a program that is both listenable for an audience and enjoyable to play,” he said.

With only three rehearsals until showtime, Seddon is excited to see the church’s 200-person capacity be filled.

“We really need people to come and support the orchestra to make sure we can maintain its existence,” he said.

Running from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, ticket prices are $20 for adults and $15 for concession. They will be available for purchase at the door.
