Do you find the concept of classical music enticing, but don’t yet feel like you have enough grey hairs, or cough lollies in your pockets, to fit in with the usual classical concert crowd?

Review: Dunedin Symphony Orchestra - Dvorak and Brahms

Posted 1:02pm Sunday 10th September 2017 by Ihlara McIndoe
