THREE North-East students will be performing for visitors to Gateshead's Shipley Art Gallery this month.

The musicians, all aged between 15 and 16, are students at Cheetham School, Manchester, which specialises in music studies.

All three, Rebecca Topping, Holly Meleham and Kate Andrews, are from the North-East and are performing at the gallery to gain experience of live performance.

The concerts will take place today, and on Fridays, April 20 and 27, from 12.15pm to 1pm.

The first performance will be given by Rebecca Topping who will play piano music by Bach, Debussy and Chopin.
