There will be a favourite piece for everyone in the audience.

With many performances now held in the late morning or early afternoons, it’s convenient for most to attend and audiences members of all ages come together to enjoy the experience.

Jennifer and Stewart and their marvellous colleagues would love to see you at a future performance. Please see what is coming up in 2015.
