Newsletter - Spring 2019
Dear Music Makers and friends,
Following a memorable winter term, including highlights such as Paul's complete performance of the Wanderer fantasy and Rosemary's performances of Scarlatti and Soler, our spring/summer concert dates are now confirmed and given below.
Over the long summer break we are planning a number of informal coffee mornings for music makers and friends, at the Storey Institute. We thought this would be a good way to keep in touch during the interval of nearly four months between the end of the Summer concert season and our first concert of the Autumn - more details to follow.
News item: congratulations are due to Chris who has passed her Diploma in piano performance!!
Our treasurer has asked me to add a note about donations. We are very grateful that a number of our supporters make annual donations to Lancaster Music Makers. While the concert receipts cover our hire of the chapel, it is these donations that allow us to put on special concerts, such as the recent recitals by Emily Robinson and Alex Phillips-Yates, and by Oliver Nelson and Vasilis Rakitzis. If you are able to make a donation, however small, please contact the treasurer (see contacts and links page).
Lastly, you may have noticed that at present we have relatively few instrumentalists (violin, cello, clarinet, etc.) performing with us recently. Does anyone know of any such musicians who would welcome opportunities to perform? We have a number of very good piano accompanists with whom they could play.
The dates for our Summer concerts are now set as follows:
First Music Makers Concert - Friday 24th May at 7.45pm
Liszt's great B minor piano sonata forms a centrepiece for tonight's concert. There is also a selection of Edwardian songs, and songs by Brahms. There will be music for flute and piano by Telemann, and piano music by Haydn, Beethoven, Albeniz and Dvorak. As usual a bumper variety of excellent music. Where else would you get all this for £6?!
Second Music Makers Concert - Friday 28th June at 7.45pm
Our Autumn concerts will be on 18th October and 29th November.
We hope to see you at these events!
