LETTER: Classical music

With reference to the article in the July 23 edition of the Worthing Herald, you state that Mark Ede, chairman of the new music festival, intends to make the month-long music celebration appeal to everyone and that it will be a ‘multi-genre and multi-venue’.

I very much hope that this will include the excellent Worthing Symphony Orchestra, whose October programme on Sunday, October 11 is called ‘Gastronomique Gourmets’ and features the amazing young saxophonist Jess Gillam.

Classical music is rarely, if ever, mentioned in the forthcoming attractions guidelines and yet it is very much a part of the rich pattern of all forms of music.

It should not be excluded.
