A concert with a sweet treat!
Having always been passionate about introducing classical music to an audience in a different way, Manon Browning has created a concert experience with that in mind.
She performs a concert of classical harp music, and introduces the pieces to the audience, by giving them insight into the composer's life, what inspired their writing, and what the piece means.
This gives the audience some more insight and an enjoyable way of listening to classical music, especially pieces that they might not have heard of before.
The audience also gets to enjoy this experience with a cup of tea and cake, which adds to the relaxed element of the concert. It also becomes a lovely new way of enjoying an afternoon tea and a break from the busy streets of London!
