Thanks to all who attended rides last week, let's hope the weather behaves for us this week!
On Sunday 26 March at 5 pm, virtuoso Hungarian violinist Édua Zadory and Dutch pianist Irene Ainstein will give the next concert in the Quintinha da Música series.
Edua will also be appearing at Pessoa´s Café in Tavira (on the left bank of the Gilão halfway between the ´Roman´ bridge and the ´Temporary military´ bridge) at 18h00 (6 pm) on Friday 24 March where she will play improvisations on the violin in response to the current art exhibition Viver Da Pesca.
Mediterranean Gardening Association – Portugal, Members and Friends Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday April 1st 2017, including a talk by Sue Parker, followed by guided walk 'Wild Orchids – Odysseys & Oddities'.
“Go to the right places in the Algarve at the right times of year, and the most amazing orchid sights will greet you.”
Sue Parker shares her time between homes in Wales and the Algarve and travels, mainly in Europe, to see, photograph and learn more about wild terrestrial orchids. Her passion for wild orchids dates back to her childhood in the Far East, where epiphytic orchids grew on the fence at the bottom of her garden.
AQUARIUS - 21 March | 9.30 pm
Clara, a 65 year old widow and retired music critic, was born into a wealthy and traditional family in Recife, Brazil. She is the last resident of the Aquarius, an original two-story building, built in the 1940s, in the upper-class, seaside Boa Viagem Avenue, Recife. All the neighboring apartments have already been acquired by a company which has other plans for that plot. Clara has pledged to only leave her place upon her death, and will engage in a cold war of sorts with the company. This tension both disturbs Clara and gives her that edge on her daily routine. It also gets her thinking about her loved ones, her past and her future.
