THE music of Philip Glass, John Cage and Steve Reich will be performed live, as part of a project aiming to nurture young musicality in Pembrokeshire.

Percussion group Quartet19 is a young, dedicated and highly versatile ensemble which has performed at venues and festivals across England and Wales.

Thanks to a partnership between Rhos y Gilwen and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, these four instrumentalists will perform locally later this month.

The aim: to encourage young people to get involved with music, through hosting live contemporary concerts and workshops that are free for students.

Next Generation project manager David Pepper said: "Due to cuts in the arts in schools and local authorities, it is now a very important time for there to be access to live and inspiring music concerts in our local communities.

"Although the main aim is to generate an interest for young music students, the events are open to the whole public and ultimately it is about creating a rich and diverse audience that has access to live and engaging culture in its community for the benefit of the community."

The event takes place at Rhos y Gilwen, Cilgerran, on Sunday, May 27, at 3pm.

Admission is free for all students, and general tickets are £5.
