The International Music Seminar, which bases itself at Prussia Cove on Mount's Bay each autumn, will be presenting a series of nine chamber music concerts this month.

Between September 13 and 29, there will be performances in Truro, Penryn, St Hilary, St Buryan, Marazion, Porthleven and Paul.

An IMS spokesman said: "The seminar allows professors and other experienced musicians, many of whom studied with Hungarian violinist and IMS founder Sandor Vegh, to come to Cornwall to play chamber music and explore the repertoire.

"Promising students from the masterclasses of last spring are also invited to participate and ensembles combine youth and experience so musicians can learn from each other."

The Cornish concert series (starting at 7.30pm unless stated) opens at Truro School (Sept 13) and continues at Marazion Community Centre (Sept 14), St Buryan Church (Sept 15, 2.30pm), St Bartholomew's Church, Porthleven (Sept 20), St Gluvias Church, Penryn (Sept 21), St Hilary Church (Sept 22, 2.30pm), Paul Parish Church (Sept 27 & 28), and St John's Church, Truro ( Sept 29, 6pm).

After the Cornish concerts there will be a national tour taking in Bristol, Cambridge, Sussex and the Wigmore Hall, London.
