23rd August: Lunchtime Violin & Piano Concert – Music from France

fb_event_buttonReturning for her second lunchtime performance at St John’s this month, pianist Irena Radić is joined by violinist Freya Goldmark in a concert of some of the finest music for violin and piano written by French composers. The highlight will be a performance of Franck’s thrilling Sonata in A Major, but we’ll also hear works by composers such as Debussy and Lili Boulanger.

As usual the café will be open from noon, serving a range of hot drinks and homemade cakes, scones etc. All profits from the café will go to The Green Backyard.

The concert will begin promptly at 1pm. Admission is free, but those who are able to afford it are asked to make a donation. The suggested amount is £4.
