They look forward to seeing you all there
Our readers in the north of England will be sad to learn of the passing of Leo Baarda. Leo single handedly created the wonderful organ concert venue at Baardas Glass Houses in Elloughton, near Hull back in the 1980's and the monthly concerts with the pipe organ, Allen theatre organ and Kurzweil piano were always well attended and appreciated by many.

This months edition of the Wersi Podcast is now online!
Music from Franz Lambert, Byron Jones, Brett Wales, Daniel Watt and Robert New
