An exploration in words and music of the ways people have sought happiness over the centuries, covered in writings from Shakespeare to Gyles Brandreth, and music from Purcell to Offenbach and Gershwin.
At last we have had final confirmation that Jenny Agutter who has been on our televisions recently in “Call the Midwife”, not to mention “The Railway Children” will be in Milverton on Friday 30th March. (Assuming that is, that her long haul flight from Tobago can locate the nearest airport to Milverton …..) She will be reading from works by Shakespeare, John Betjeman, Emily Bronte, Roger McGough, Giles Brandreth and more, accompanied by wonderful music on Oboe and Piano performed by the Polmear /Ambache Duo on a theme of the Pursuit of Happiness. A fitting and uplifting end to a very successful 2011/12 season for Milverton Concert Society.
