One thought on “Music in Mudgee

  1. Good to see ANAM back at Huntington. There were lots of positive audience comments after last night’s Bartok Divertimento. There was some confusion over the mature age student on cello. Most now know his name is Howard.
    We await Peteris Vasks with great anticipation. inspired programming.
