Lunchtime Concert: Flute and Harp Duo

Florence-AstleyOn Thursday 29th October at 1.00pm, Dorset County Museum is hosting a lunchtime concert featuring flute and harp duo Viginia Astley (flute) and Florence Astley (harpist).

Virginia Astley is a songwriter and musician now living in West Dorset. She studied flute and piano at Chethams School of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. After signing to Warner/Chappell, she produced five albums including the celebrated ‘From Gardens Where We Feel Secure’ and has worked with musicians ranging from Pete Townshend to Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Florence Astley studied the piano and harp at the junior department of the Royal College of Music with Daphne Boden and Emily Jeffrey, before continuing her studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and subsequently at Dartington College of Arts. Florence currently performs frequently throughout Dorset.

Virginia and her daughter Florence regularly appear together as a flute and harp duo, and have performed at a wide variety of venues in Somerset and Dorset, including Montacute House, Forde Abbey and Athelhampton House.

Everyone is welcome at this free concert, although to cover costs, a small donation of £3.00 is requested. The concert will take place in the Museum’s Victorian Gallery.
