Day of Special Interest           

Saturday 19th October 2019    

10am -3.30pm

'The Genius of Beethoven' by Peter Medhurst

A Day of Special Interest has been arranged at The County Hotel Neville Street NE 15DF (opposite the Central Station). The hotel has good transport links in the heart of Newcastle and has facilities for those with disabilities.

Peter Medhurst is a great favourite of The Arts Society with an exceptional talent as both a speaker and a musician. He studied singing, organ, composition and the harpsicord at the Royal College of Music.

On this Study Day Peter will explore some of the detail and subtlety of Beethoven's genius, and at the same time setting this extraordinary story against the backdrop of 19th century warfare, revolution and dramatic social change.

The cost of the day which includes a coffee/tea break and a three course sit-down lunch is just £45.00 per person.

This Study Day will be a very memorable event. Booking early is advised.
