The familiar tones of 'National Treasure' James Naughtie can be enjoyed on 22 September at a Walking and Book Festival event.
Famous as a presenter of Radio 4's Today programme and Bookclub, Naughtie is also a knowledgeable classical music enthusiast and author. Tonight he interviews Oliver Condy, former editor of the BBC Music Magazine about Condy's new book, Symphonies for the Soul. The sub-title, Classical Music to Cure any Ailment, gives a good idea of its subject matter. The talk will be accompanied by examples of Condy's chosen music. Now here's a test: come along, and see if you leave with a spring in your step!
Influence Church, Victoria Road, Richmond; 22 September at 7:30pm. Tickets are £15 at the door.
PS 1: this talk is supported by Richmondshire Concerts, a thriving local concert society which puts on half a dozen top-quality professional concerts in Richmond every year.
PS 2: this week's 'Lucky Dip' is just one of hundreds of events that can be found in What's On Richmond, both online (just click What's On, either here or in our main menu) and in the print edition, which appears every two months and is distributed free to shops and other outlets around Richmond.
