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.

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.
