On Thursday 21 September 2017, 1pm to 2pm. Classical Folk will perform exciting and beautiful interpretations of classical and folk, music and song, introducing pieces with interesting or amusing information about the music or the composer.
Classical Folk are Sylvia Akagi (voice and flute), Andrew Wickens (violin) and Peter Golden (guitar).
Andrew studied at the Royal Academy of Music and won a scholarship to the Conservatory of St. Cecilia in Rome. Now semi-retired from the Philharmonia Orchestra, he has been a professional violinist all his life and played all around the world.
Sylvia is an outstanding Sussex folk singer and flautist with a clear, gentle voice.
Peter studied the piano from the age of four, and took up the guitar in his teens. Composing and arranging music for many genres, he is a long-time member of the Performing Rights Society.
You can see, hear, and read about them via their website Classical Folk
