International Mezzo-soprano Linda Finnie, will return to Tonbridge School Chapel to give a concert with Tonbridge Philharmonic Society conducted by Matthew Willis.

The programme for the concert which takes place on Saturday 19th November includes “For St Cecilia” and “Ceremonial Ode” by Gerald Finzi, and “The Cloud Messenger“ by Gustav Holst.

Linda, from Girvan, is delighted to be performing again in the beautiful restored venue that is Tonbridge School Chapel, following last year’s performance of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis.

The spectacular Chapel was painstakingly re-built following a devastating fire in 1988.

Restoration and repair took seven years to complete and it was re-consecrated by the Bishop of Rochester in 1995. It can seat up to 700 guests and includes the Marcussen organ, which is widely regarded as one of the finest instruments in the country.
