Welcome to the 2017/18 series

A warm welcome to you all, and to myself as the new Director of Concerts!  I am replacing Paul Hindmarsh after 10 years of his imaginative stewardship, and hope both to continue the great work Paul did, and to bring my own musical experience to bear on helping to select the MMCS’ exciting blend of new talent and established artists...
