The Langley High School Orchestra presents a concert of British Classics on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. Due to the renovation of the Langley HS Auditorium, the concert will be held at South Lakes HS, 11400 South Lakes Drive, Reston. The concert is free, and the public is invited to hear wonderful string orchestra music and participate in the Silent Auction.

The four orchestras will perform music by Gustav Holst, John Rutter, Peter Warlock, Ernest Bloch, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Henry Purcell, George F. Handel and Percy Fletcher. Guidance counselor Julie McGreevy will be contributing her refined accent and the Queen's finest English in her role as master of ceremonies.
