Two new organisations have been set up for talented musicians and singers in Calderdale.

The Halifax Concert Orchestra and the Halifax Musical Theatre Company plan to stage their first concert at Square Chapel in October.

Conductor Graham Robbins said: “We want to perform a wide range of music from films and stage shows and build a company with upwards of 50 singers and an orchestra which will vary according its repertoire.”

The first meeting is at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, on May 23 at 7.30pm. Anyone interested can call 01274 675437.
