Join us for a musical journey through time, with a series of music appreciation sessions.

When: Fridays 5 - 6pm

Following the huge success of the Music Appreciation sessions with Mary Gibbs last year, Age UK Islington has teamed up with Healthy Generations to bring you a new series of Music Appreciation.  

Join in this online musical get together where Mary will perform and talk about different pieces of music. Themes include folk, opera, ballet, jazz and much more!
