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.
