As I am normally found in Gloria Jean’s Coffees in the Highcross and do some work for them from time to time. Being the sort of person that I am, I wondered what could make this experience better. The answer of course was live music, ably and expertly provided by the Soar Valley Music Centre. Starting with an excellent string quartet, followed by an equally amazing woodwind section and finished off with a brass section that would sonorously fill any space, they brilliantly played a medley of christmassy music good enough to warm the cockles of the meanest scrooge. Check them out, they’re brilliant!
