Newsletter - Autumn 2017
Dear Music Makers and friends, The dates of our Autumn concerts are listed below. In addition to the two concerts performed by our local supporters, we have another joint concert with the Lake District Composers Group. Details of the programmes will be given a few weeks before each concert.
First Music Makers Concert - Friday 13th October at 7.45pm
Tonight's concert includes a mixture of songs and piano music. The vocal contributions include a set of songs arranged for voice, clarinet and piano by Spohr, and songs arranged for voice and piano by Ivor Gurney, Brahms, Britten, Schubert, Faure and Mozart. Piano contributions include a selection from Albeniz's Suite Espanola, Op.47, and the piano duets `Parade of the Tin Soldiers' by Jessel (better known to many of us as the theme music for `Toytown' on the BBC Home Service!) and a previously unperformed piece written by our very own Rosemary Brown. Please join us for an interesting selection of music in a friendly and informal setting.
