Musicians and choir to band together at the Saraton

THE Saraton Theatre will hum with life tomorrow as the Northern Beaches Concert Band and Choir perform with the Grafton Community of Schools Choir in what is predicted to be a breathtaking performance.

Fifty students in Years 4-6 will travel from Sydney with conductor James Hill in order to join local primary school vocalists in making a 140-piece choir and band.

The travelling musicians will spend today at Grafton Public School doing workshops and a mini performance.

Come tomorrow, 1000 Clarence Valley primary school students will enjoy a matinee session before the doors open to the public at 6.30pm.

"This is their third time we've been to Grafton and it just keeps getting bigger and better," Mr Hill said.

"We'd like to hit the 800 (attendees) mark for the night concert."

The musicians will deliver traditional choir songs, as well as pop tunes by artists like Adele and Coldplay.

The performance is scheduled to go for 90 minutes.
