Monthly Members' Evening 15

We are happy to announce the latest of our monthly Members’ Evenings. These Members’ Evenings are a regular fixture in the Club calendar. They take place on the first Monday of every month and incorporate an interesting event, followed by a buffet with wine. Members will be able to get together in a relaxed atmosphere. At the moment we are very fortunate in being able to offer the ‘Musical Moments’ series of concerts to start those evenings. The ‘Musical Moments’ concerts have been made possible by the very kind cooperation of The Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. We are very privileged in being able to present these young, highly talented musicians who are already making their mark in the music world. This month Corinna Hentschel will be playing violin and Giulio Poggia will be playing piano.
