Time for another newsletter
to keep you all informed regarding events at the Tithebarn. We do try
to vary concerts for you, and we hope that you are enjoying our programme.
If anyone has any suggestions, we are always delighted to hear from you,
so do get in touch, either in person or by e-mail (Brenalan@aol.com).
Friday 18th March 7.30p.m.
This is our AGM and we would like to invite all our members to attend
a short meeting followed by some refreshments of cheese and wine. We will
follow this meeting with an entertainment given by Mr. George Barnes.
He calls his memoirs “Life after Libraries”, and you will
be amused and enlightened by the varied experiences that George has enjoyed.
Saturday 2nd April 7.30.m.
- Note the different day - Saturday instead of Friday.
We are having this extra concert to showcase the talents of some of our
young musicians who are studying at Chetham’s Music School in Manchester.
This is a specialist music college for talented young people aged from
8 to 18. It is the largest music school in the UK, and the only one in
the north of England. Mrs. Harvey’s (Melling) grand-daughter Ashley
will be bringing some of her friends. In her own words:
We are raising money for a trip to Perth, Australia with Commonwealth
Resounds (www.commonwealthresounds.com/). We will be running masterclasses,
combining with other schools and musicians in Perth and also other groups
from around the world. It is a chance to expose music to other young people
and collaborate with other musicians. We need to raise £1,150 each
to get to Perth, stay and travel. I think there will be 5-6 of us. Between
us, we have a variety of string and woodwind instruments which we are
planning to play in ensembles. We also have a lot of solo repetoire between
us so we have plenty of stuff we can play!
She sounds enthusiastic, so we do hope that you will be able to support
them. We are hoping for a good audience, so it might be an idea to reserve
your seat by phoning 526 4992, or 531 8772 All monies raised will be given
to the young people and all extra donations will of course be welcomed
by them. They deserve our support.

including songs from the shows, popular lyrics, etc. A great night of

School - hoping not only to entertain the children, but inspire them with
Friday 15th July 7.30p.m.
Fresh from her debut Wigmore Hall recital, Kathryn Rudge will present
an evening of vocal music. Carl Davis has said of her: “Kathryn
not only has a beautiful mezzo soprano voice, but a genuine ability to
communicate. Her diction is perfect.”
She is someone you must not miss - at the beginning of her operatic career.
She was born in Liverpool in 1986, so we should be proud of our home-grown
