A NEW programme of arts events for the autumn season featuring more than 70 performances has been unveiled today by Artsreach.

Music lovers can enjoy a medley of styles and genres from both national and international musicians.

Highlights include Serbia’s leading violinist Branko Ristic who returns with his trio Faith i Branko to kick off the new season with their original high-energy Roma/Jazz music.

Artsreach also continues its partnership with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, bringing the Resonate Strings and Symphonic Brass ensembles to venues across the county.

Inspired by Indian classical music and poetry, vocalist Ranjana Ghatak tours with Mercury nominated bass player Liran Donin and guitarist Jack Ross following the release of her debut album.

Award-winning British jazz violinist Chris Garrick and the ever-popular Budapest Café Orchestra are back with a new show packed with their distinctive gypsy folk music.

For theatre-goers, Cornish company Owdyado present a hilariously dark triple bill of riotous comedies inspired by The Twilight Zone in their new show Twisted Tales.

Taking inspiration from Shakespeare’s poetry and plays, Pip Utton becomes the Bard for an entertaining romp around the life of arguably the greatest playwright of all time.
