This is what rural touring is all about – audience intimacy and fun with classical music. Old Dalby Village Hall experienced the return of Fordante last Friday.
An absolute hoot to be there again.
Many thanks to those at Fordante’s opening concert at St Michael’s Church, Kirk Langley, last night. Always good to hear audience response particularly to a new show.
