Please would you notify Brian Burdock that you wish to pay by this method so that he can keep his records up to date. For those members who already pay by standing order please check with their banks that the correct amount is being paid.
Concert by The Metropolitan Orchestra at St George’s Bristol, Saturday 10th March 2018 at 7.30p.m. The programme is Ataraxia – Ridley, Shostakovich cello concerto No.1 – soloist Samara Ginsberg. Rimsky- Korsakov – Symphony No. 1. The ticket prices are £15/£12.00, concessions £14/11, (prices to be confirmed) reserved seats. Tickets for members can be purchased at half price from Brian Burdock on club nights or by posting a SAE to him at 42 Rodbourne Road, Bristol BS10 5AS. Members may also purchase additional tickets for non-members at full price. As there is now a limited number of tickets available early purchase is recommended. The last Club evening at which tickets can be purchased will be Tuesday 20th February.
Sue Burdock has asked me to remind members that she is still accepting unwanted music which can then be put out for sale on Club evenings and the money raised goes towards the upkeep of the pianos. This has been a very successful way of helping with these costs.
Lastly, enclosed is the Spring Term programme. There are some really excellent programmes on offer and the concerts begin again on Tuesday 9th January 2018.
On behalf of the committee I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.
