Music For Pleasure

We Meet at 1.45pm on the 4th. Thursday of the month in room 2 in our Pink Lane office.

We spend a very pleasant afternoon listening to mostly classical and light classical music and learning a little about the relevant composers and artists. Our average attendance is fourteen to eighteen.

In May 2014 we started on a large project - The History of Classical Music, beginning with Early Music, the Renaissance, then through the Baroque, and now, having enjoyed the lyrical music of Haydn who started the Classical Period followed by the delightfully tuneful and emotional music of Mozart we have moved on to study Beethoven, another of the greats of classical music.

Recently we have tried meeting on occasional Saturdays to watch a full DVD of an opera bringing a picnic lunch for the interval. These " Opera Saturdays" have proved very successful and we have also shown the occasional musical, the most recent being Les Miserables, and then for our Christmas meeting in early December we enjoyed Donizetti's comic opera La Fille Du Regiment.

We are having a summer break in July so our next meeting will be on the 22nd. August in Room 2 at 1-45pm. when we shall be listening to some of Beethoven's later compositions. You are very welcome to come and join us.
