A wonderfully varied programme, full of mischief and humour, begins our Spring Weekend of Song, given by Felicity Lott, one of Britain's most celebrated singers, and renowned pianist Eugene Asti.

Susan Gritton will still be adjudicating the Young Artist Platform on the 5th and giving the masterclass on the 6th.
