Stephen Leeder, of Rhyl Music Club, said: “Our club has a long tradition of supporting young people who are considering making music a career.

“Apart from our annual event, we also offer opportunities for involvement in other concerts and many go on to conservatoires and then either orchestras or as solo performers.

“This is more important than ever, with the role of the arts in schools in decline.

“This year, with the support of a trust established by Stephen Roberts, an opera star born in Rhyl, we have arranged two days of teaching with Sophia Rahman, who will give advice on many areas of music with a view to enabling young people to cope with stress and life as a musician.

“We have asked two singers, a pianist, a cellist and a trumpeter to be part of this mini festival - ages between 13 and 18.

“The standard of these performers may shock visitors because they are already most accomplished and not only in music performance.

A small number of free tickets may be available on the day before the event - February 13 - and these can be obtained by emailing concerts@rhylmusic.com.
