Autumn Programme

Dear Music Makers and Friends, Vistaprint have changed the editing suite to an incomprehensible system, so please forgive us if the layout on this page looks less than optimal. Following a busier than usual Summer, we have a busier than usual Autumn to look forward to. Highlights include our November 15th recital, given by Paul Greenhalgh and friends, with three magnificent chamber works. Rachmaninov's gorgeous cello sonata, very much in the same idiom as his more famous 2nd piano concerto, is one of these. We also have another slot in the Ashton Hall Wednesday lunchtime concert series, in which our pianists will be on stage. These are in addition to the usual eclectic mix of music to be found in our two Music Makers concerts, and, of course, the Christmas party (bring your thinking caps!). Happy music making - Rosemary.​
