Following our 2017 "Five Continents" season which traversed the globe and our 2018 "Musical Luminati" season which embraced passionate musical-thinkers, 2019's "Musical Kin" explores artistic lives of composers with extensive musical family trees performed by members of musical families.
Stemming from musical families, Husband/Wife Ami Williamson (Singer-Songwriter) and Clemens Leske (Pianist) and Father/Daughter Chris Allan (Piano) and Miriam Allan (Soprano) join Artistic Director, Flautist Sally Walker to share part of their artistic lives with us.
