Cheap - but not cheesy...

This evening the Cathedral is hosting the first of its summer season of concerts. All tickets for the season are priced at £5, a special rate celebrating the fact that over £60,000 has now been raised for the Organ Restoration Fund. Essential restoration work on the Cathedral's organ will begin later this month.

Tonight's concert is given by a trio of flute, bassoon and guitar. Hailing from Sweden, the group is called 'Svecia', which is (apparently) a type of Swedish cheese. Nothing cheesy about this, however, and a respectable crowd turned out to hear this very beautifully performed music.
