Flute, Oboe and strings - Flute and Oboe combine with strings to perform an eclectic programme of trios, quartets and quintets. There will be Mozart, Beethoven, JC Bach and a baroque trio sonata plus some equallly charming music from less well known but accessible twentieth century composers. A real "potpourri" and an ideal way to spend a summer's evening!
