Music Appreciation

Contact: Margaret Richards

The Music Appreciation Group holds its meetings on the afternoon of the third Wednesday of the month at City United Reform Church in Windsor Place, starting at 2.00 pm and finishing at about 3.30 pm.

The group aims to explore different genres of music by sharing favourites and information or by discussing pieces of music or videos.

The talks are as varied as we can make them, given by members of the group or by visitors. We hope to include visits from students of the Royal Welsh College who can demonstrate their instruments and give us a short recital. There is no formality to our meetings and all your suggestions are gratefully received. Be reassured that no musical qualifications are needed to enjoy our talks!

New members are made most welcome.
