An evening of popular traditional and classical music will be performed by the award-winning Sidmouth Town Band with the River City Chorus at the Manor Pavilion tomorrow night.

The ladies barbershop harmony group will be playing with the traditional band to put on a show with a little bit of something for everyone.

Based in Exeter the harmony group formed in 1992 and perform across Devon and the surrounding areas.

A spokesman said: “This concert programme offers music for most tastes, from Elton John to Puccini.

“Coupled with the performances by award winning local musicians from the Sidmouth Town Band and the brilliant barbershop harmonies from the locally based River City Chorus, there should be plenty for everyone to enjoy.”

The Devon Freewheelers will receive a significant donation from the concert proceeds, with the rest going to the Lions’ local charity activities.

Tickets cost £9, and are available from the Manor Pavilion box office on 01395 514413.
