Local bandoneon expert to join fusion concert in Aldersbrook


A leading exponent of the bandoneon – a concertina-style musical instrument – will be performing at St Gabriel’s Church on 19 March as part of the Valentine Singers’ Misatango concert (7.30pm; £15).

“We are delighted South Woodford resident Julian Rowlands, who often plays on Strictly Come Dancing, will be part of our event. The concert is quite unusual. It will include a Mass written by an Argentine composer in a tango style. A fusion of words from the past with music of the present,” said a spokesperson.
