Light classical concert 26 February

An afternoon concert of light classical music in aid of the British Home is taking place in the Concert Hall at the British Home, Crown Lane (near Crown Point), Streatham SW16 3JB at 3pm on Sunday 26 February.

 

Light classical music was once widely heard on the radio, but much less so nowadays. It was given a boost a few years ago with Radio 3's Light Fantastic festival. This concert is an annual event by the Mark FitzGerald Orchestra to raise funds for the Home. Tickets are £7.00 (£5 concessions) and are available in advance or on the door.
