Having just had the June Listening to Jazz session, I realised the time had come for me to turn to another monthly rant, musings, or whatever about the music I’ve loved for over 60 years. One thing I’ve realised is with over 2500 cds on the shelves, many of which are not worth much to […]

Starting with Maria von Weber’s ‘Invitation to the Dance’, we swept into a selection of waltzes from Richard Strauss’ ‘Der Rosenkavalier’. ‘Turkey Trot’, an arrangement made in forty minutes of Vincent Youman’s ‘Tea for Two’ by Shostakovitch completed the first part […]

The subject at our next meeting on Tuesday, 12th July, will be Famous People and/or Occasions. We meet in the Bowden Room from 2-4pm and newcomers are most welcome. Phyllis Lord.
