Outreach; June 2018

Our outreach programme enables us to broaden our audience base by offering opportunities to hear early music throughout the year in different settings. On Thursday June 21st, Make Music Day, we invited Ruth Hopkins and Sam Brown to the Commandery Museum where they played Elizabethan Lute songs to captivated audiences, young and not so young! Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail
