Unfortunately I missed the March 20th Meeting but I am indebted to our chairman for taking the appropriate notes. The Widmore Consort provided another great performance
Here they are...(Thanks again Denis!)
Only eight members turned up to the March meeting, a somewhat disappointing turnout.
We welcomed Larisa Lieberman, who was making her first visit and enjoyed taking a full part in the ensemble rehearsal. We do hope that she will consider joining BGS at some future date.
Your Chairman was feeling somewhat poorly, so asked John Mann to run the ensemble session, which he did extremely well and produced very good results. We rehearsed the Scarlatti Sonata to a standard which I think would please Ray Butcher.
Before the coffee break, Garth Pinkney, from The Widmore Ensemble, requested an opportunity to play two of his Grade Six pieces, as part of the preparations for his imminent grade examination. The chosen pieces were “Vals” by Jose Ferrer, and “The Wind of Change” by Lee Sollory.
Tom Page then played “Danza Brazilera” by Jorge Morel.
After the coffee break, we were entertained for half an hour by The Widmore Ensemble, directed by our Society’s sole surviving founder member, Paul Brown.
The chosen programme was:-
Canon J Pachelbel
2nd Act Tune from The Island Princess J Clarke
Spring – 1st movement from The Four Seasons A Vivaldi
Spanish Folk Song Suite (four pieces) arr. D. Burden
A Time For Us (from Romeo and Juliet) N. Rota
Michael Jackson Medley Jackson / Krohn
