A MESSAGE FROM GUY TURNER (Sunday 18th November 2018)
Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into last night’s concert, which I think you will agree added up to a very satisfying evening.
Members of the orchestra and soloists commented on how hard the choir must have worked to achieve the standards we did. We did have to work particularly hard this term, especially on The Trumpet, which was a challenge, but I hope you will agree that it was all worth it.
I would particularly like to thank Sally as concert manager, and Richard Joyner, whose initial ideas, and discovery of The Trumpet, led to the choice of programme.
Many thanks for a memorable concert and a suitable reflection on the Armistice Centenary.
