PREVIEW; The Glam Gala Concert St David's Hall in Cardiff.

The countdown has begun to The Glam Reunion Symphony Orchestra and Chorus'gala performance.

Following last year's successful reunion , the orchestra and chorus, with the addition of the Glam Wind Band, are returning to the stage for a performance of classical favourites at St David's Hall in Cardiff.

The evening will feature a number of big names, including newlyknighted Welsh conductor Sir Karl Jenkins, a former Glamorgan Youth Orchestra player, and Simon Morgan from the West End's The Lion King.

The programme will include the premiere fanfare by Terry "Drac" Johns and it will feature a wideranging repertoire, from Copland to Faure and Jenkins to Johns.

The concert will also include a performance of a unique arrangement from The Lion King by the newly-formed South Wales based Glam Youth Choir.

Members of the youth choir will have had the chance to work with artists during the free GlamCamp2015 summer school, taking place during the week prior to the concert at the University of South Wales.

Among the orchestra's players is MP Wayne David, who is an oboeist.

He said: "Music has been a huge part of my life and the Mid Glam Orchestra (and the Glam before it) gave me so much.

"I sincerely much hope that this year's concert will build on last year's success, and will make the point that giving young people musical opportunities is central to them being able to live full lives."

The Glam is keen to ensure that opportunities are not lost for young performers today.
