CLASSICAL Goes Pop! comes to Grimsby Auditorium this Saturday, August 25.

The show will feature one of the North’s leading orchestras – Sinfonia Viva – together with special guest tenor Jonathan Ansell, of ‘G4’ fame.

The programme will include a full suite of classical favourites, as well as more contemporary songs that will highlight Jonathan’s lauded tenor talent.

As well as including numbers from Cole Porter and Gershwin, with Nessun Dorma, Caruso and Bohemian Rhapsody among the vocal numbers Jonathan is set to sing, there will also be a Last Night of the Proms-style finale and lots of flag-waving and participation.

This event was originally planned for Meridian Park and tickets already purchased for that venue will automatically be transferred to reserved priority seating, allocated on arrival.

But if you don’t have tickets they are still available – at £16, children £8 – from the box office on 0844 8713016 or online at www.atgtickets.com/grimsbyauditorium.co.uk .
