Music Appreciation

To find out more about this Group, Email
with the subject as “Music”

What we do:

The Nomads Group is still going strong after twenty one years. Once a month we visit each other's homes, the host having prepared a programme of music of his or her choice which, more often than not, suits all tastes. This can be anything from Shows to Shostakovich, Opera to Offenbach or Ballet to Borodin.

We start off with tea/coffee and whilst catching up with each other's news before the music starts when we comment on the particular pieces and their composers. We occasionally have a quiz or interposed question which really tests our knowledge (or lack of it) on different aspects of music. We have also used videos of orchestral concerts which have been very enjoyable.

Great friendships have lasted many years. New members have replaced those who have sadly passed away or become infirm and they, too, have become great friends.  We would like to thank all our members for their participation in making the group a joyful success.        

Meeting Area: Home Based   Meeting Day: Fridays AM.
