The season of winter has inspired the greatest of composers.  It is, for many people, a time of hardship and soul-searching.  For others it is magical and beautifully personal.  

 

This one-hour journey through the pictures and emotions of winter is a musical representation of everything which this special season represents.  As always, our concerts are designed to be friendly and informal, and are followed by complimentary drinks.
