Monthly Members' Evening 8

We are happy to announce the eigth of our monthly Members’ Evenings. We plan to make these Members’ Evenings a regular fixture in the Club calendar. They will take place on the first Monday of every month and will 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 Edgar Cardoso will be playing solo piano.
