Barry Jobling, a professional pianist, singer and conductor, is offering a series of lectures on the art of opera and some of its most important composers at St. Michael's and All Angels Parish Hall this Spring.

The first of ten talks begins on the 16th January, and from then on every Thursday afternoon until the end of March. The lectures will run from 2pm to 4.15 and will cost £10 each with coffee, tea and biscuits included. If you can't make Thursdays, Barry will be running the same series on Friday mornings at the Friends Meeting House on Woodville Road in Ealing.

Whether you are a great opera buff or a complete newcomer to the genre, Barry Jobling will educate and entertain you with his infectious enthusiasm!
