We look forward to coming out of lockdown as we head towards the ‘new normal’ later this year with a wonderful free one-hour recital at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge on 25 October…
CAM presents a varied programme of music by Australian composers Mark Underwoodand Wendy Hiscocks who will be performing in the concert; emeritus professor of music at the University of Sydney, Anne Boyd; performer, teacher and composer Brett Thompson; and Eugene Goossens, the English born composer whose influence in Australia led to the construction of the Sydney Opera House.
