One of the singers is West End leading lady Jenna-Lee James.

She is currently on tour with Strictly Come Dancing star Brendon Cole and has just finished a world tour with Hollywood star Hugh Jackman.

Her fellow performers have also appeared in We Will Rock You.

After this show, the Hallam Sinfonia will be turning their minds back to their spring concert, Sunset Sailboats, which takes place on March 21 at High Storrs School.

They will be performing Benjamin Britten's popular depictions of the Suffolk coastline in the Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes. Also on the programme are Beethoven’s Romance in F Major and Brahms’ Fourth Symphony. Tickets: eventbrite.co.uk
