Dates: 05 Nov 2020 - 05 Nov 2020

It’s true to say that being able to play classical music is an acquired taste. But if 2020 was a piece of classical music it would probably begin with melancholic violins progressing into thundering piano pieces.
The Lancaster Priory has been fortunate to host covid-19 safe classical concerts thanks to Lancaster Arts.
The next spellbinding performance takes place on Thursday 5th November 7.30pm - 9pm entitled :- “The Musical Sigh: From Brahms to Pärt”.
