WEST Wales’s best-loved symphony orchestra will return to Pembrokeshire this autumn with a concert celebrating the music of cinema.

Symphonica Tywi will visit St. Mary’s church Saturday, October 21 at 7.30 p.m for a Great Orchestral Film Classics concert under the baton of its founder, Michael Cottam.

In the year celebrating John Williams’s eighty-fifth birthday, the programme is dedicated to the world of film compositions by Williams, John Barry and other famous film composers.

Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Psycho, Harry Potter head a concert which also includes Where Eagles Dare, Cinema Paradiso, E.T. and The Big Country.

This year, a talented young Haverfordwest soprano, Stephanie Jayne Hills, will be singing from Les Miserables with the orchestra.

Stephanie Jayne is becoming well-known from productions of Haverfordwest Operatic Society, having taken the soprano lead in HMS Pinafore, performed by the society in The Torch Theatre this Spring.

Mike Cottam is a former musical director of H.O.S. before he left to be vicar of Llangadog in Carmarthenshire after ordination in 1993.

Returning last year to live in St. Ishmaels, he has resumed his connection with the society.

The concert promises to be a night of exciting orchestral music, giving homage to the craft of the film composer from 1930 to the present day.

Tickets are £12 (£10 Concessions) with children under 14 admitted free.

They can be booked in advance by ringing 07876 727906 or 01646 636564 or by emailing mikecottam@hotmail.com
