An exciting Dutch ensemble orchestra will be coming to the city tomorrow night.

Orkest de Ereprijs bring their music to Preston Minster on the Preston stop of their UK-wide tour.

The group will be performing music by a number of composers including Steve Reich and Louis Andriessen.

Nick Casswell has been involved in organising the event.

He said: “Orkest de Ereprijs are a great, exciting ensemble and the concert will feature new work written specifically for them. The music is varied and always interesting – the sound produced by the ensemble is completely original.

“This is part of a UK tour that they are doing, which has been instigated and organized by myself in connection with UCLan, Birmingham Conservatoire and York University. Birmingham and York have close connections to the ensemble, and I wanted to instigate a new event in Preston that will hopefully lead to future concerts/events that bring international performers to Preston.”

The event is part-funded by the University of Central Lancashire and tickets are £6 for adults and £3 for students, OAPs and the unemployed.

It takes place at the Minster on Church Street from 7.30pm on Thursday 9th February. Reservations can be made by calling 01772 89 3372.
