An Evening of English Song

 

On November 23rd many association members participated at "An Evening of English Song" concert held at Villa Wolkonsky performed by students of the Royal Academy of Music. The evening began with a welcome speech by Ambassador Jill Morris and special guest from the UK Minister of Culture, Media and Sport Karen Bradley. 

A truly unusual event with a rich programme of pieces by John Dowland, Benjamin Britten, Thomas Campion and Henry Purcell, culminating with an outstanding performance of Brittens Cantile II: Abraham and Isaac.
