Drink and Concert

Dear members,

You would not need to read the book to come to this concert. The story of 'Alicia's gift' is a good pretext to listen to beautiful compositions. 

So let's meet either before the concert for a drink from 6:15 at the Scarsdale Tavern or directly at Leighton House before 7:30 (starting time for the concert) for:

Alicia's gift Words and Music with VIV McLEAN piano and JESSICA DUCHEN author of 'Alicia's gift'. The recital will include works by CHOPIN, MANUEL DE FALLA, DEBUSSY, GRANADOS, MESSIAEN & RAVEL.

For this event, a special price for members of this meetup. I can get you ticket at £15 (including a glass of wine or refreshement) instead of £18.

    I am so annoyed at not being able to attend. I am sure the human body has not been put together very cleverly. I could have done better than whoever designed us.

    Dear All,

    Just to let you know that the review of Alicia's gift World premiere by Frances Wilson (Cross-Eyed Pianist) was very good:

    "What a magical evening!" "The combination of prose and music worked very well......a unique evening's entertainment" What does a family do to a talented child? What does the presence of a prodigy do to the family? And how on earth can she find the right teacher? The topics at the heart of Jessica Duchen’s acclaimed […]

    There will be at the end of the concert a book signing session for those interested. Unfortunately, I cannot make it for 6:15pm (I have to take my daughter to a lecture) but I will meet you at Leighton house before the concert. Your tickets will be waiting for you at the box office. I will leave the instructions in case I am running late.

    See you tomorrow,

    Unfortunately, I am receiving an injection into my knee that day and I am supposed to stay put and not go up and down stairs and sit with a bent knee. If for any reason the doctor decides to change the date I will gladly attend.
