The Royal Albert Hall is presenting a series of Sunday Classical Coffee Mornings starting on 26 January 2014 as part of their More at the Hall strand. Taking place in the Hall's Elgar Room, tickets are £11 and include a hot drink and a pastry, with music for an hour 11am. The performers all come from the Royal College of Music and give you a chance to hear some striking young talent. The first recital (26/1) is being given by 17 year old Abby Bowen who performs viola music by Bloch and Rebecca Clarke, which is definitely worth getting out of bed for.Future concerts include a BBC Young Musician finalist, as well as music by Poulenc, Piazzolla, Richard Rodney Bennett, Krommer and Arvo Pärt.
