Autumn concert 2014

TNRA's Autumn Concert took place on Friday 24 October in the Henry Wood Hall. An audience of 70 local residents heard from Anne Denholm (harp) and David de Winter (tenor). The highlight of the first half was a Fantasy on Themes from "Eugene Onegin" by Tchaikovsky while the second half was dominated by Benjamin Britten. The encore was a beautiful rendition of Greensleeves by David accompanied by Anne on the harp.

TNRA is very grateful to local resident Alison Martin for organising the performers and to Charles at Henry Wood Hall for allowing us to use one of Britain's foremost rehearsal and recording venues for our concert.
