The cream of Kent's young musicians will get the chance to perform with an internationally-acclaimed violinist at a summer concert.

26-year-old Chloë Hanslip began playing the violin at the age of two, performed solo when she was four, and by the age of 10, had performed in all Europe's major concert halls. 

Now, aspiring violinists and music enthusiasts can enjoy a masterclass with the prodigy and perform at Kent County Youth Orchestra's Summer Concert on Saturday, August 30.
