Local Young Performers
Saturday 11 February 2023 at 7:30 pm
Having been unable to arrange this popular annual event in 2020 and 2021, we are delighted to be organizing it once again. There will be four talented school-age musicians that we have handpicked who will bring their best to perform for us. We know you love to support budding young artists; Breinton’s warm and enthusiastic audience will provide them with a wonderful opportunity, for the pure joy of performing, without the pressure of competition or audition.
