Latest news from the City Music Foundation - July 2014

What do the Old Bailey, Mercers’ Hall, Guildhall Yard and St Sepulchre-without-Newgate all have in common? What about beer, Brahms, and recorders? 
The City Music Foundation’s programme of activities in July unites all of these, provides access to exclusive City venues, and is a great opportunity to get to know CMF, our work and our CMF Artists.

What better way to relax after work than with a beer in historic surroundings listening to eclectic alternative folk group Tir Eolas?
Or maybe you would prefer to escape the city, allowing your mind to travel to the Bernese Oberland through the sublime music of Brahms performed by CMF Artists Mikhail Nemtsov and Mari Poll?
And perhaps you want to learn more about the City and its history together with the Recorder of London HH Judge Brian Barker QC, CMF Artist Miriam Nerval, and special guest and CMF Patron Simon Callow?

Amidst all of this, a panel of renowned experts will be listening and talking to the outstanding musicians who have reached the final stage of judging to decide our next CMF Artists!
We look forward to meeting you in the coming days,

The CMF Team
