Sound the Horn!

Featuring Martin Lawrence, horn & Grace Mo, piano

Make way for the regal resonance of the French horn! From the soothing tones of Schubert’s Ave Maria to Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, we’ll have as many twists and turns in store as the horn itself. And of course, the conch and the hosepipe as you’ve never heard it before!

Doors open at 3.30pm. Concert lasts for about an hour.

Spring Fantasia

Featuring Ian Wilson, recorders & Libby Burgess, piano

Doors open at 3.30pm. Concert lasts for about an hour.
