MORE than 150 children from 11 York schools will be in audience when the York Guildhall Orchestra stages its first concert of its new season on Saturday evening at York Barbican.

A spokesman said that to develop talented young players’ playing skills and their interest in orchestral music, the orchestra arranged with the York Music Hub for them to receive reduced-price tickets.

He said the concert would feature piano soloist Grace Huang playing Bartok’s Piano Concerto no 3.
