THE wild west beckons for Dorset Sinfonia.

The orchestra's summer concert will take its audience on a wild ride at Weymouth Bay Methodist Church on Saturday July 11 at 2.20pm.

The show is particularly aimed at children with silly things for them to do like learning how to do the Mexican Hat Dance.

Another highlight will be the world premiere of a piece written especially for this concert.

Percussionist Chris Brown has set Lynne Reid Banks’ magical story of “The Indian in the Cupboard” with the tale told by music and a narrator.

Along with music from films like The Magnificent Seven and the theme from The Lone Ranger, the show will have every one reaching for their Stetsons and saddles.

Orchestra spokesman Ian Thomas said: “Although the orchestra has chosen pieces appealing to children, we are pretty sure the adults will want to join in –just to help their kids of course. Who knows, we might even run out of Mexican Hats.”

Tickets are available on the door or from the Weymouth Pavilion box office or the Tourist Information Centre in Dorchester.
