Dec 2018 Review

Looking back over the last 21 months since we were gifted our very fine Kawai baby grand piano, I think we can safely say that we have made the most of our acquisition and ‘struck a chord’ with our local community in providing a facility whereby they can come and enjoy a variety of concert performances across the musical spectrum.

Our early introductory evening concerts last year opened up the possibilities, this year, of developing Saturday afternoon recitals with professional musicians and the 5 monthly recitals we held were very well received and supported.

In addition, our monthly Sunday Evening Recitals over the summer months also proved to be popular and enabled many more local amateur and professional musicians to showcase their talents to a wider audience.

And the good news is that this situation is definitely set to continue !

The musical sponsor of our Saturday afternoon concerts, John Turner, has already drafted another series of monthly recitals which will run from March through to August and will include a performance in July which will be particularly appropriate for children and families.

And already, I have received several enquiries from hitherto unknown musicians who are eager to see whether they can be accommodated in our series of Sunday Evening Recitals. These include an established singer/songwriter guitarist (with additional instrumental backing) who has her own very pleasant ballad style and is currently working on her second album, a duo of violin and guitar who offer something different and an international professional pianist who focuses on tailoring his programme to make the maximum connection with his audience.

So I am relishing the opportunity to put together another series of varied recitals which may have to increase in number to accommodate the level of interest !

Roll on 2019 !
