Friends Music concert in Welwyn Garden City cancelled
A Friends Music concert planned for Welwyn Garden City this weekend has had to be cancelled at short notice.
The internationally acclaimed Ensemble Hans Gál – with Joshua Löhrer on clarinet and Nicholas Selo on cello – was due to make a welcome return to the Quaker Meeting House in Handside Lane on Sunday evening.
But the concert was called off last night (Tuesday).
A Friends Music spokesman wrote in a newsletter: “I’m extremely sorry to say that I’ve just had a phone message from Nicholas saying that for a number of reasons, not least that they’ve been stuck in Brussels for 24 hours, from where he was phoning, that they’re cancelling the UK tour as a whole, and so will not be with us on Sunday.
“Our next autumn concert is still to be determined, as our ‘surprise concert’ has been ‘overtaken by events’.”
