Yi and Anita's extremely talented children join their parents and Max Kasper for our “Family Affair” concert.
Please join us for more composer anecdotes, and music featuring the French Horn.
Music by Mozart, Shaw, Quantz, Corelli and others.

"Words and Music (it's almost Opera!)"
Tuesday May 20th: Alderney Landing
Thursday May 22nd: Spring Garden Road
We really wanted to do another concert about Opera, as the stories are so great, but alas, we cannot sing! So we chose the next best thing... The idea of putting music to accompany a play or story has been around for a long time, so for this year's Library appearance, the Gatto Dolce Duo will be performing music to accompany the worst opera story we could find.
Come and join us for some truly hilarious stories of Opera music and composers and enjoy our wonderful music set to a truly bad story! What could be better!!!
Music by: Mozart, Haydn, Pleyel, Massenet and others.
Gatto Dolce Duo
• Colin Matthews: Cello
• Max Kasper: Bass
