THE opening gala of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's fourth year of residence takes place tonight at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre and hopes are high that the prestigious link between the world's most famous orchestra and the east coast can continue.

As the series depends entirely on ticket sales, The Journal has teamed up with the Marina to launch a campaign and send out a call to music lovers to book early for this current season, enabling the venue to confirm an historic fifth year of residence in 2009.

Tonight's concert features Beethoven's Coriolan Overture, Brahms Violin Concerto and Mendelssohn's Symphony Number 3 (Scottish). In a late change to the programme violinist Jack Liebeck will replace soloist Nicola Loud who is unable to appear through illness.

In the past month, a host of leading politicians and entertainers have backed The Journal's campaign to extend the association with the RPO for a further year - with notably cellist Julian Lloyd Webber adding his support along with Britain's king of comedy, Ken Dodd, last week.

For more information or to book your seats, please call the box office on 01502 533200.
