On Sunday 1st July no less than eight performances will take place.  At 3pm you can hear the Gloucestershire Intermediate String Ensemble, Youth String Orchestra, Youth Choir and the Forest of Dean Area Wind Band.  At 7:30pm the festival will draw to a close with the Gloucestershire Youth Wind Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Orchestra.  There will also be a guest solo spot from Katie Jenner (finalist in this year’s Gloucestershire Young Musicians Competition). 

Steven Legge (Extended Learning and Provisions Manager for Gloucestershire Music) said: We hope this new format of consecutive concerts will create a real buzz around the fine work that GM achieves. With tickets priced at just £3.50 for each concert and will local companies supporting us there is hope we will attract good audiences.  Come and join us for four days of music making at one of our favourite local venues, the Stroud Subscription Rooms.
