Saturday 20th March 2011

Been a very busy time for us all. Change is in the air what with budgets,redundancies, austerity measures and other aspects of gloom pervading the UK at the moment. However just for a moment, they were all forgotten with a great turn out for March. With the Federation Guitar Socities meeting rapidly approaching we pulled all stops out to work on our presentation pieces or the day. Los Palmeros and Carnavalita are all coming along nicely. Your correspondent managed to get though most of Los Palmeros although he was tripped up a bit in the third section.......but it is definitely showing great signs of progress!!
Under the baton of our concert meister Ray Butcher, the two pieces look definitely promising. So roll on June the 26th!! While we have a dedicated group working on these pieces there is always room for more. Its not too late to come along and be part of what will be a fun day on the 26th June a Hawes Down Junior School. If you want to join in the pluck and strum prac do come along to the next meeting scheduled for Saturday April 16th. Bring along any solos for performance as well!
We were also entertained to a performance from Paul Brown and the Widmore Guitar Concert who performed some delightful pieces such as the the theme from Romeo and Juliet and a very ambitious and creditable performance of Vivaldis Spring from the 'Four Seasons'. Paul and his group have been regular guests at the Bromley Guitar Society and their performances are always eagerly anticipated. Long may it continue!!

As usual there are many people to thank for their efforts. That includes Ray Butcher (our conductor), Den Stockton (Master of Ceremonies) and Trevor Pike for refreshments.

See you in April
