Website of the Week: Flutissimo

Are you a fan of Edwardian parlour songs? Do you live near Perth in Western Australia? If you can answer "Yes" to these questions, please go to concerts by The Weatherly Club. These feature the lyrical and heartwarming songs by Frederic E. Weatherly, such as "Danny Boy" and my favourite, "Roses of Picardy". John Hardy hosts the events and sings, accompanied by Emily Gunson's beautiful flute.

Hello Hels,

I think that Pavlova probably wanted to leave the music halls, and she was inspired by Diaghilev. I have a few books about her, so I will look this up.
