A Concert for Christmas Margaret Keys with The Fishpond Choir & Bel Canto Male Chorus

Margaret Keys is returning to Belper after wowing the audience when she opened the Belper Arts Festival. Her concert on 1 December begins a series of high profile appearances in the run up to Christmas. Over the past couple of weeks Margaret has been recording a new album and I caught up with her between sessions. It will be her second album of the year. 'The Gift Of Music' reached number two on the classical chart and I started by asking her what it felt like to have a 'chart topping' album.

The collection demonstrates a variety of experimental styles of working in paint. The exhibition focusses on depicting native trees in local settings, and experiments with lighting, from soft summer evening sun to the contrast of sunshine and shadow.
