Herne Hill Music Festival Super Sunday - 4 events with 3 in the Park!

After leading with music from Opal Flutes in Carnegie Library and a Youth Jazz Showcase at St Saviour's, Herne Hill Music Festival's Saturday finished with a well-attended recital from the Belvil Trio at St Faith's to benefit international development charity Practical Action.

 

Now it's time for Super Sunday - which means four events in one day, two free and two ticketed, with the first three in Brockwell Park, on Oct. 12th. Events begin with chamber choir The Friends' Musick's 'Noonday Serenade' (11:30-12:30) and founder member Annie Bright urges everyone to come up to Brockwell Hall to join her for some madrigals, rounds and audience participation! Plus some great views. We spoke with Annie at the Carnegie Library on Saturday afternoon after Opal Flutes' lunchtime concert - while the the flautists were packing up. See video below.

Hedge planting continues until Thursday 13th December 2012 from 11am - 3pm in Cressingham Ridge, volunteers welcome!

It will also be a colourful hedgerow for park visitors to enjoy.
