with Terry Barfoot, and a concert by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
We will explore the music of Dmitri Shostakovich, one of the greatest composers of the 20th
century, featuring some of his best loved works while exploring some less famous but equally
rewarding compositions. There will be full programme notes and music examples on
excellent hi-fi equipment, as well as an orchestral concert at Lighthouse in Poole, the largest
arts centre in the UK outside London.
The four-star BEST WESTERN PLUS Connaught Hotel is located near the West Cliff in
central Bournemouth. Built in 1850, it has excellent facilities including a spa and an awardwinning restaurant.
Arts in Residence and the Connaught Hotel offer an excellent cuisine including wine with
dinner and supper. The event will end on Thursday afternoon.

record companies. He lectures at venues throughout the country, is Publications Consultant to
the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the Director of Arts in Residence.
