We welcome Toby Louw as the latest fully-paid member of the society. We also welcomed-back Rob Sellery after a long absence sorting out house repairs. Thanks too to Denis, who was not there but has left a stock of music books with John for the society to use. Our regular visitor from down-under (no, not you Andrew), Peter Monty, came along to the meeting but will soon be heading off back to Australia for a while. We hope he'll be back next year for some sessions with us.
This was interspersed with a great selection of solo performances:
|Vince||Ukranian Folk Song (Nikita Koshkin)|
|Marion||Gaelic Song #1 (Nuttall)|
|Freddie|| Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (Kern) [own arr.]
Peanut Vendor (Simons/Sunshine/Gilbert) [own arr.]
|Rob|| My Romance (Hart/Rogers)
Gnossiene #1 (Satie) [own arr.]
|Toby||Sunburst (York, Andrew)|
This evening's ensemble practice went well. Thanks to John Mann for his hard work bringing us to this point ahead of tomorrow's performance at the Beckenham Music Festival.
