The workshop of a Shropshire car garage seems an unusual venue for a classical music concert. But the guests to the Bridgnorth Sinfonia performance at David Dexters in Bridgnorth did not seem to mind at all!

The orchestra performed a range of music from the classic to the more modern, for which they welcomed singer Andy James to join them.

More than 100 people gathered in the workshop on Stanley Lane to see the Sinfonia in what has become an annual concert.

David Dexters sponsor the Sinfonia as many of its members are customers.

Managing director Richard Whitney said: “We are very much part of the community in Bridgnorth and a number of our customers are involved with the Sinfonia.

“We like to support local groups and organisations and to have the Sinfonia perform here in our workshop is an absolute pleasure as they are fantastic to listen to, especially in a large space such as the workshop.

“We had more than 100 people come along on Sunday (Nov 20th) and they enjoyed some bubbly and snacks as well as the music.

“A big thank you to all who were involved, to the Bridgnorth Endowed School who kindly lent us chairs for the evening, and of course to all of the musicians of the Bridgnorth Sinfonia and conductor James Ross.”

Formed in 2009 the Sinfonia, which is made up of amateur and professional musicians from the local area, rehearse in St John the Evangelist Church hall on a Sunday afternoon once a month.
