MUSIC IN NEW RADNOR - On October 11, Music in New Radnor presents the five-piece ensemble Fordante.

This unique blend of traditional and modernday sound takes the listener on an exhilarating musical journey of pure emotion without the need for crossing the scholarly barrier sometimes associated with classical music.There will be cabaret seating, and please bring your own drinks (glasses provided). The concert starts at 7.30pm in the Community Hall, Hall Lane. Tickets on the door at £9 or book in advance on 01544 350268.
