Audiences at Thursdays @ Seven concerts at All Saints Church in Howick will enjoy a double dose of fine classical music next week, as concerts are offered two nights running, at the usual start time of 7pm.

Thursday, August 3 will feature well-known Auckland artists in a programme of glorious music by Schubert.

Duo pianists Kay Shacklock and Peter Watts will be joined by soprano Katharine Watts to present famous piano duets and much-loved songs.

The three artists have performed numerous concerts in Auckland, creating programmes of interest and variety.

He has performed throughout New Zealand and also internationally, winning awards in major international piano competitions and gaining valuable professional experience.

His Howick programme includes favourites by Chopin and Tchaikovsky.
