The Lincoln Symphony Orchestra will be performing a new year Viennese Concert at Lincoln Drill Hall on Sunday.

The family concert, suitable for all ages, will feature music everyone has heard before with lots of audience participation, and ticket prices have been reduced for under 16s, who can now join in for £5 each.

Tony Gadd, who is patron of Lincoln Symphony Orchestra, a life member and was chairman for 15 years, says: "It's nice to have young adults and children at the event – that's why it's on a Sunday and in the afternoon.

"It's such a lovely concert and there will be a chance for some audience participation as well. Everyone will be clapping along to some of it."

The concert includes waltzes and polkas, as well as the Die Fledermause Overture. Many will have seen the Viennese Concert on television, as it is regularly transmitted live from Vienna on New Year's Day. Elements most recognisable include the Champagne Polka and Skater's Waltz.

New Year Evergreens, Lincoln Symphony Orchestra: Viennese Concert on Sunday, January 13 (3.30pm). Tickets: £12 (£10 concs, £5 U16s with at least one accompanying adult). Box office: 01522 873894, www.lincolndrillhall.com
