The final event in the 2017 Isle of Ely Arts Festival will be a performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

Ely Sinfonia and Ely Choral Society will be joined by Ely Consort for the concert, which takes place at Ely Cathedral on Saturday July 15.

“The concert combines Beethoven’s 9th with two pieces that brilliantly reflect the theme of this year’s arts festival, The Fens,” said Patricia Mathieson, of Ely Sinfonia.

“Ralph Vaughan-Williams’s In the Fen Country is perhaps one of the best known and most

evocative of all orchestral pieces dedicated to the area, and it is complemented by the world premiere of Fenland Images by local conductor and composer Andrew Parnell.”

The concert will end with presentations to the winners of the arts fstival short story, poetry and photography competitions, whose work will be on display in the cathedral’s south transept.

Tickets; £5 to £25, are available from Ely Cathedral Box Office (01353 660349) or email box.office@elycathedral.org

The concert starts at 7.30pm.
