Celebrities join forces with Dorridge Music School for Symphony Hall performance

Dorridge Music School has entered into the final throes of preparations for their 4th annual concert spectacular at the iconic Symphony Hall in Birmingham on 16th October, with a 300-strong collective, supplemented by an array of guest talent from around the West Midlands, including well known rock veteran Bev Bevan and members of UB40, such as Brian Travers.

The music school which carries registered charity status will be passing all profits from this year’s event to a triple women’s cancer fund for Cervical, Ovarian and Breast Cancers.

Bev Bevins, famous for stints with Black Sabbath, ELO and The Move and honoured this year on Birmingham’s Walk of Fame, has not been excused from practice sessions and will be lining up with Brian Travers and 2 other members of UB40 and a host of mainly young local talent including a ballerina and stunningly talented Michael Jackson impersonator.  Jimmy Franks from Radio WM will be on hand to provide those all important links and introductions.

Dorridge Music School has gone from strength to strength in recent years and draws pupils from a wide area, including strong links with Balsall Common with numerous pupils hailing from the area. Leigh Perry the Music School Head produces the annual show and as always is looking forward to the big night,

“We aim each year to make it a varied programme with music to suit all tastes and we hunt for the very best dancers from local schools to add visuals to the “Live” music. This year we have a ballerina from The Elmhurst School of Dance, Bollywood Dreams, Learning Curves School for Dance, Rob A Giles a brilliant Michael Jackson tribute act plus Mr Laurie Neal, Birmingham’s singing solicitor!”

Tickets are priced £10.50 , £14 , £17 and can be obtained from the Symphony Hall website at:
