A group of almost 60 people will travel to Guernsey in June as part of the Biberach Symphonic Orchestra touring team and will perform a special concert at St Stephen’s Church on Friday 12th alongside Christine Anthony’s Bel Canto choir.


The organisers are hoping to find private hosts for some of the visiting musicians, most of whom will be staying at Les Cotils. The 8 teenagers are aged between 16 and 19 years old.

If anyone would be happy to help host, or knows of any friends or relatives with musical interests who might also be interested then please get in touch with Helga, Chair of the Biberach Friends of Guernsey ([email protected]) or the leader of the orchestra, Klaus Pfalzer ([email protected]).
