Cinema classics in concert.

A TRIO of talented musicians from the same family will have a starring role when Tinsel Town comes to Anglesey.

For two nights young musicians in North West Wales will bring the magic of the movies to life at the leisure centre in Beaumaris.

The William Mathias School Music Service -sponsored by Anglesey-based Peninsula Home Improvements - will be playing film music favourites, from Pirates of the Caribbean to Schindler's List.

The concerts, on Saturday and Sunday, June 29/30, from 7pm, will feature senior and junior orchestras, harps, concert band, junior brass and jazz players.

It's a showcase for musical talent from Anglesey, Gwynedd and Denbighshire - talent like the Farrar family from Dinorwig.

All five of Stel Farrar's children - past and present pupils at Ysgol Tryfan Bangor - have been through the school music service and benefited from the summer music schools. Three will be performing at the concert.

"All of my children played musical instruments offered by the school service. They got to a certain level and went on to area level and then got into the county group and then if they improve go on to residential courses," said Stel, a Welsh adult learners project worker for Bangor University.

Four of Stel's children have also benefitted from Peninsula bursaries for young musicians.
