ONE of the North West’s finest flautists will give a recital in the final concert of Leigh Music Society’s 2011/2012 season.

Royal College of Music student Daniel Chandler will visit the Derby Room at the Turnpike Centre to give a concert accompanied by regular Leigh Music Society pianist Stewart Death.

After graduating from the RCM, Daniel worked as a freelance musician in London performing in orchestras and touring productions before heading Stateside to coach chamber music in America.

He returned to the North West and is now Director of Music at Arnold School in Blackpool, while maintaining an active career performing, delivering workshops, and adjudicating at music festivals.

Stewart, who previously appeared at Leigh Music Society in January accompanying clarinettist Lenny Sayers, studied piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Royal Northern College of Music.

He has toured throughout Europe with the Concordia Opera Trio and worked as an accompanist for Welsh National Opera, while regularly appearing on Classic FM and BBC Radio.

The concert will be held in The Derby Room above Leigh Library, on Civic Square, on Sunday, March 4 from 2.15 to 4.15pm.

Tickets are £8 for adults and £3 for children and students, and can be bought on the door. For more information ring 01942 725976.
