Two Pre-Christmas Gifts

Leicester Music Society Tues. 13th. December.

The distinguished baritone Stephen Varcoe delivers a talk on the music of Gerald Finzi. In his immense discography, the singer has made some memorable CD’s of the composer’s work so it should be an evening of great insight. Visitors are very welcome.  Clarendon Park Congregational  Church, Springfield Rd., off London Rd. 19.30

Lunchtime Concerts Thurs. 15th.December.

Katya Apekishiva  and Charles Owen play a programme of piano music written or arranged for 4 hands. In recent years this duo have given concerts and released recordings of this repertoire, all of which have been received with great acclaim. It should make a fine musical ending to 2016. New Walk Museum 13.00
