The Broken Hill Philharmonic Choir is about to present its 219th concert.

The concert, titled "May It Be", will be held on Sunday at the Musicians' Club Auditorium at 3pm.

It will feature the Philharmonic Choir and soloists, with guest artists Ken Barnett on violin, Chanelle Burrows, a harpist, and Shannon Swart, a singer.

Chanelle is only 12 years old and Shannon Swart was involved with the Glee Australia tour.

Rawleigh Smith, publicity officer for the Philharmonic Choir, said it always liked to promote young local artists.

Mr Smith said the title of the concert came from an Enya song used in the Lord of the Rings movies and will be performed at the concert.

He said the theme of the concert was "dreaming, heaven and angels".

Tickets are available at the door for $15, concessions $12 and children's $8. Group concessions of 10 or more will cost $10.

"The Philharmonic Society has been performing for over 75 years and this is the 219th concert," Mr Smith said.

"The organisation's all about promoting singing and anyone who wants to hear some live music should come along."
