An innovative instrument combination will be entertaining audiences in the Theatre Royal’s final lunchtime concert on Monday.

Horn player Kay Dawson and cellist Jane Da Costa will take to the stage as an unlikely yet wonderful musical duo.

The pair will be playing pieces written specifically for the instrument pairing.

The programme will include Pietro Montani’s Stories of Dance and duos by American jazz and popular music composer, Alec Wilder.

Writing through the mid 20th century, Wilder was well known in his time and worked with many musical greats including Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mercer, Tony Bennett and Peggy Lee.

Sought-after Suffolk performer Kay is a returning figure in the concert series, with cellist and teacher Jane a new introduction.

Both are members of chamber music group the Ennead Ensemble.

There performance marks the end of the theatre’s concert series, organised by ArtsOptions.

Margo Pigott, who runs ArtsOptions, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for music lovers in Bury to pop out in their lunch hours to enjoy something special.”

Complimentary tea, coffee and cakes will be served at the concert.

Tickets are £8.50. To book, contact the Theatre Royal box office on 01284 769505 or see www.theatreroyal.org.
