Newsletter - Summer 2019

Dear Music Makers and friends, 

The Summer is here and  we now take a break from our concerts in St. Martin's Chapel - the next one is in the Autumn. Nevertheless, we are not letting the grass grow beneath our feet! On July 10th the pianists from LMM are presenting a lunchtime concert at the Ashton Hall, and we are also planning to keep in touch by meeting for coffee in early July, August and September - see information below. Please do come along.  Meanwhile our plans for the Autumn are well advanced. In addition to our usual Chapel concerts with their eclectic mix of music, we are planning a recital of music for violin and piano, to be held on November 15th to include Beethoven's Spring Sonata - an event not to be missed!!

Summer Events:

Coffee Morning - July 4th 10.30 in the cafe at University of Cumbria.
We are meeting to discuss the Ashton Hall concert, but all are welcome. To reach the cafe, head toward
the chapel with the main University reception building on your right and an old sandstone building on
your left, and turn first left onto a path between two buildings. The cafe is at the end of the path.
We are planning future coffee mornings in early August and early September - dates to be posted here.
