About the group
The Music for Pleasure group has as its principle the introduction of members to music they may not know or to new aspects of familiar music.
At each meeting, a member presents a programme of music that they enjoy – classical, jazz, light music, or any other genre, with comment from the presenter and discussion of the music chosen.
Some subjects of meetings earlier this year are listed below. Click on the name if you would like more details of the music played:
