Dreams and fantasies: music for voice and recorder
Fri 28 Feb 2014 , 7:30 pm| Free
Recorder player Jane Shuttleworth and soprano Elizabeth Roberts, accompanied on piano by Janet Evans present a light hearted programme introducing some of the core works of the recorder repertoire, paired with matching songs.
