Pianist Robert Gammon to play Dementia-friendly Tea Concert at St Chad’s in York

THE first Dementia-friendly Tea Concert of 2020 will take place at St Chad’s Church, Campleshon Road, York, on January 16 at 2.30pm.

Pianist Robert Gammon will play music by Bach, Mendelssohn, Medtner, Chopin and Schubert in a 45-minute classical programme to be followed by tea and coffee, homemade cakes and a chance to chat.

“Everyone is welcome at these concerts,” says clarinet player Alison Gammon, who will join Robert for a concert on March 19. “The atmosphere is very relaxed and suitable for anyone who might not feel able to attend a formal classical concert. There’s no charge for admission, but donations are welcome.”

In further concerts, Paul Milhau will play solo violin on February 20 and The Clementhorpe Piano Trio will perform on April 16. More concerts are planned for the rest of 2020 too.

Pleas note, St Chad’s has a small car park and street parking is available along Campleshon Road. Disabled access is via the hall.
