CLASSICAL music group Local & Live have put together an exciting programme of events for the next 12 months.

The not-for-profit enthusiasts stage all their events at St James's Church, Wollaston and involve local musicians of all ages.

Their season starts on Saturday September 20 with a piano festival involving local pianists Matthew Davies, Tony Bridgewater, Richard Hall, Michael Jones, George Rowley, Janine Smith and Mike Smith, who will be performing some of their favourite pieces.

Fans of choral singing are in for a treat on November 1, when Kidderminster Male Choir will be performing a range of show songs, popular music and spirituals.

The Central England Ensemble are also set to feature on March 21, 2015.

They will include performances from soloists Linda May, Tony May, Anna Downes and Gill Blanchard, conducted by Stourbridge musician Tony Bridgewater.

Guitars, banjos and mandolins will all feature prominently in 'Zing Go The Strings' - a concert on June 6, 2015, which will be performed by the Midland Fretted Orchestra.

The season comes to a conclusion on July 4, 2015 with a performance by young music students from across the borough when Dudley Performing Arts take to the platform.

Tickets for each concert costs £8 and can be obtained on the door or from Music Matters in Market Street, Stourbridge.

Under 18s can get in for free.
