Trinity Term Concerts
We have had a fantastic year of concerts so far here at the JdP and next term promises to be just as exciting. With just a few weeks to go until the start of Trinity Term 2019 have a quick look at what is coming up over the next few months.
Spain Past and Present: Jonathan Powell (piano) // Saturday 27th April, 7.30pm

Seasons for Change: Maria Razumovskaya (piano) // Friday 17th May, 7.30pm
£12 stalls / £16 gallery / £5 students
The evocative miniatures that make up Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons represent a bridge, perhaps existing only in
