Message from Duncan our Director of Music
 

Dear SCS member,

Many thanks for a wonderful concert last Saturday.

I happily seem to make this point twice a year as it is so crucial; the Saturday afternoon is key to a successful and enjoyable day. 

Because of our hard work from February, the choir was spot on in rehearsal, allowing the soloists to feel happy, no overtime and a super concert.

Very well done to you all and an absolute pleasure for me! And what fabulous solo singing and virtuoso piano playing on our doorstep! And without you, there would be no concert so thank you for your support!

We are so well looked after by Sean and the committee whose tasks are countless. Thanks also to our invaluable volunteers on the day.

“Going forward”, it’s ALL about recruitment so please spread the word.

We wanted to hear more of Elspeth and she is delighted to be booked for next February!

We had a bigger audience than last year so the Summer concert (often not a big famous work with orchestra) is moving in the right direction. With notice, perhaps we can bring in an even bigger audience to match our Winter numbers? I think last Saturday showed what people missed!?

I hope to see as many of you as possible at the party. 

Best wishes,

Duncan
