The Music Group meets at the Elim church, Waterside Park, Ashbourne on the 4th Friday of each month at 10.15 a.m. New people are always welcome.
We try to cater for a wide range of musical tastes and make particular use of DVD's of the more visual forms of music, such as operas, concerts, and ballet. Members' contributions are very welcome: a presentation on Portuguese Fado guitar music was fascinating, and we much enjoyed a recorder recital in January 2016 and an account of what it was like to be a chorister for the Coronation. We go to concerts in Nottingham that promise to be enjoyable and viable several times a year. We are always happy to see new members at our monthly meetings.
The May meeting will be on the 24th. I hope the group will enjoy two ballets choreographed by John Cranko: "Pineapple Poll",with music by Arthur Sullivan, and "The Lady and the Fool" to music, perhaps surprisingly, by Verdi. I should like to hear what you would like to hear and watch in the coming months, but I think June will be a DIY/ your CDs occasion!
All welcome, come along.
