The society will perform a programme of light classical music at Woodbridge Methodist Church on March 26, with all proceeds going to the church.

Woodbridge Orchestral Society has announced it will be holding a concert in aid of its host church in March.

The programme of light classical music will be performed at Woodbridge Methodist Church in St John’s Street on Monday, March 26 at 7.30pm.

All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the work of the church.

The society has had a number of different homes over the years, including St Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Birkett Road and the Red Cross rooms in Seckford Street.

The orchestra’s repertoire is of classical music from across the 16th century to the present day and ranging in character from miniatures to full scale symphonic works.

Tickets including light refreshments are £7, and can be bought in advance or on the door.
