The Colourful Tailleferre

Posted by Maciej Granat on Monday, April 9, 2012, In : Concert 
18 April (Wednesday) at 7:30pm at the RCS.

Please come, listen, watch, enjoy and fall in love the way we did.

delayed news

It will take place at the Kilmardinny Arts Centre (50 Kilmardinny Avenue, G61 3NN Glasgow), Sunday,10th December at 6:45pm.

I am probably even more stressed than my pupils :)

There will be plenty of colourful music, some four hands pieces even and I'll play something myself too, but this definitely my young students' evening!

There's free entry if you want to have a listen.
