The penultimate concert in the Plumstead Peculiars concert series became an unexpected informal Art Plumstead meeting, with several members of the group turning up independently to enjoy the Abraxas Ensemble. It was a treat to sit in the cool interior of the Ascension Church away from the heat of the afternoon and enjoy a vibrant medley of familiar classical tunes played with panache and good humour. By the end, everyone felt thoroughly invigorated.
As always, there was tea and cake served by volunteers with a chance to mingle. Donations to the retiring collection are split between the church and the musicians. There is only one concert left in the series featuring Julia Macdonell on horn and Alexander Thomas on harp so if you are interested to find out what is on offer, Sunday July 22nd is your last chance of the summer!
