Over the past few months, we have been working together to create exciting and meaningful concerts for you. We have thoroughly enjoyed receiving your wonderful messages of support and although we are still unable to perform for you in person, we are delighted to be able to share our music with you.
So whether you're watching them for the 10th time or the 1st, we hope you can enjoy some of our autumn concerts this Festive period...
