The James Hargest College hall will resound with music tonight when a fundraising concert is held.

The concert will raise funds to help send the school's choir, Ancora, to perform as a guest at the Big Sing in Dunedin later this month, and is the final event in a two-day music festival.

Head of music Lesley Little said about 70 students would be involved in the finale performance, which she and band member Michael Forde had arranged.

There would also be performances from both the school choirs, the concert band, production orchestra, jazz bands, a big band, rock band, and the winners of a soloist competition held last night.

The concert will be held at the James Hargest College senior campus hall at 7pm. Entry is by gold coin.
