MUSIC at St Mary in the Baum - TOAD LANE CONCERTS

St Mary’s Gate / Toad Lane, Rochdale OL16 1DZ. 12:30 to 1:30 pm every Wednesday,
with refreshments available from 11:30 am.  Admission £5.

Dear fellow classical music aficionados,

Here follows the latest tranche of 2020 concerts at St Mary in the Baum ‘AS SEEN ON THE BBC’. 

Following our 900th concert in March 2019, it was felt that to help us reach our next 900th we needed to raise our entry fee. Having resisted this for several years we hope the increase from £4 to £5 is not too discouraging. This still represents fantastic value for what is on offer.


08   'More than Melody' Ladies' Choir

15   Lucy Farrimond mezzo soprano (RNCM) and
          Duncan Glenday piano (RNCM & Manchester University)

22   Alice Roberts harp (RNCM)

29   Giulia Contaldo piano (Italy, Vienna & RNCM)


05   Margaret Ferguson soprano (Ghana, Poland & RNCM)


Details to remember, please pass on:
