With Laura will be Noelle Fair Ciccarelli, who is directing 'Timon of Athens' (in a modern urban setting), the second play of Programme B. Between them they will also be able to give us some idea about what Director Evelyn O'Malley will be doing up at the Northcott in preparation for the the final production, 'Stone No More', which features Ben Johnson's Masque of Oberon and the characters from 'The Winter's Tale' performing music and dance to animate the statue of Hermione - that's going to be something!

at Reed Hall on Monday
This is a big musical event with a fifteen piece orchestra - including Oli Ritchie of the Scholars' Ensemble playing his harp. Not only that. The acting and singing of the cast is also augmented by the Liebeslieder Singers - it's all truly amazing.
The costumes, the setting, everything is very special - we'll let Rosie and Charlotte tell us the full story.
You can catch 'A Little Night Music' for the next three nights. There are still plenty of seats available for Wednesday's show. Thursday is fully booked, but their may be standby seats - email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Someone else, who is also very keen to tell us about a University-related music event, is Katherine Miles.

Katherine (and maybe some of the other musicians) would like to come along and tell us all about the Exeter University Symphony Orchestra concert which is taking place this week. There has already been a taster performance on Cathedral Green this Monday. On Friday there will be an informal performance in the marquee outside The Ram bar in Devonshire House from 5-7pm. (If you can find that, you'll have a grand time!) Then, on Saturday night, at the more usual 7.30pm, and as part of the EUSO's 'community outreach' effort, the full concert will be performed on stage at the Mint Methodist Church in Fore Street.
Listen out for full details of the concert some time after 11am tomorrow.
