Regular Courses and Workshops

Early Music Mornings, Henstridge

Frances Eustace is starting a weekly session for Early Music enthusiasts to play together. It will initially be a mixed ensemble with the possibility of splitting into smaller consorts or expanding to involve voices depending on the interests of the participants. The sessions will be led and lightly tutored by Frances but will have the feel of a club rather than a class. Further Details
