The concerts are organised by the Wolverhampton Music Education Hub to give young musicians the chance to perform in spectacular spaces away from their schools.

Each show at the Lichfield Street gallery features a range of music from classical to contemporary - and most stops in between.

The 2017 programme begins on Friday 27 January, at 1.10pm, in the company of talented students from Coppice Performing Arts School.

Members of the 'Coppice Senior Vocal Group' will be performing vocal arrangements of medleys from 'Les Misérables' and 'Blood Brothers', plus 'Fix You', and a vocal solo from Zak Bartlett.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "If you are looking for something to do on a lunchtime then come and spend it in the Georgian Room at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

"We have a spectacular programme arranged for 2017, where young students from across the city will be singing and playing instruments for your entertainment, for free.

"It would be great for people to go along and show their support."

All the concerts will start at 1.10pm and future dates include 10 February, 10 and 24 March, 19 May, 16 and 30 June, and 14 July.
