Cosy Concerts started in February 2013. Since then we have had a variety of artists and music, all of which have been greatly appreciated and enjoyed within our community of parents, carers and children. Thank you for your support! 

It has been brought to my attention that people might like to look back on their favourite pieces, listen again to them on CD or over the internet, or watch videos of musicians playing them on youtube, where available! So, here is a list of each concert and the music that has been performed. Happy browsing!
