Monica and John will present their recital "The French Connection" on the 14 July, Bastille Day, celebrating music for violin and piano by diverse composers. None of these composers hail from Paris, but are all connected to the city in some way.
Come and hear music for piano and violin by Mozart, Beethoven, Saint-Georges, Prokofiev, Schumann and Brahms and discover the relationship to the City of Light!
