What happens on the 4th Wednesday at Music Forum?
On the fourth Wednesday of each month we meet to listen to programmes of mainly short pieces or single movements based on a particular theme. Some examples could be the work of a composer, an instrument, a period in music’s history, an artist. The list goes on and on…………………..
The actual listening time is about one hour, which leaves plenty of time for discussion and REFRESHMENTS.
Past meetings have included : –
• Francis Poulenc through five decades,
• Dancing in the Western World.
• A Unique String Quartet
• Chamber Music for Winds.
• Music inspired by Shakespeare.
• French Piano Music.
• The Pipe Organ.
• The Opera in Verona.
• The music of Arthur Bliss.
• Italian Opera
• Music for Christmas
• The long life and works of R,V.W.
• What is a fugue?
• Andre Previn
• Surprises by Haydn
• World Music
Group Members are most welcome to present their own programme,
which doesn’t have to be for the whole hour, and no obligation!
At the moment the group is overfull and there is a waiting list
