    thank you all for coming! :) I was lost and came late for the drinks, but enjoyed the evening very much. Didn't expect so many people there so we all got lost in the crowd i guess. next time will organise it better to find each other and perhaps meet afterwards for a chat/drink. miriam

    The accordionist's expression while playing was priceless, great to hear Jelena reciting her own work in English. Thanks for this evening.

    All confirmed, but I don't think I will be able to make it before 6pm so I'll try to find you inside!
