Anna Noakes (flute), back by popular request, was joined by the distinguished harpist Gabriella Dall’Ollio for an enchanting afternoon of music that delighted a full house at the Village Hall this weekend. The music included classics, such as an arrangement of Mozart’s Magic Flute but was truly global in scope with folk music from Hungary and jazz from South America.
