February 2020: Candlemas

Join us for an afternoon of music and poetry, readings and other contributions from our own members. This year we will be deviating from the usual evening format and holding it on a Sunday afternoon instead. Guests will be welcomed with coffee, tea or glühwein in Emile van Leenen’s piano workshop. During the interval we will serve a substantial tea and drinks.

Please let us know if you would like to contribute an item such as a piece of music (there is a grand piano in the room), a short talk or something else. All contributions are welcome but you are also free just to come and enjoy the afternoon!

Place: “Emilie van Leenen Piano’s”, Lammermark 59, 2312 CM, Leiden
Price: €15
