Lunchtime Concerts

Lunchtime Concerts

In a previous post, we have discussed the benefits of taking a proper lunch break to recharge our batteries.  We suggested a few art talks throughout London. This week we list a selection of lunchtime concerts.

Benjamin Franklin, who exemplifies the creative mind, already pointed out in his daily schedule published in his autobiography the importance of one hour break at lunch time. So, why not you?  Research shows that music can do more than just lift our spirits: it reduces tension. Let's try!
