CD ANGELO
Last Friday, February 9, the day was there: We presented our first cd ‘Angelo’! Several newspapers wrote articles about the CD and the newly built ‘lame sonore classique’. The concert was sold out really quickly, so today at 5pm we will perform the program again at the beautiful Museum Vosbergen (a museum for musical instruments).
