IAA Lunchtime Concerts – 2016


We will be starting the process of getting together the programme of lunchtime concerts
for the 2016 season, after Easter this year. These popular monthly events provide
an opportunity for groups of local singers or instrumentalists, who may not always have
many opportunities to perform, to give a 45 minutes concert.
