” Stop Press” The Christmas Meeting on the 9th December will be special !

Invite your friends, neighbours and family even if they are not members. This evening will be exceptional value for lovers of light classical operatic music and the company will be first rate.

We have managed to invite the soprano Erin Alexander back to perform for us some of the best of the popular operatic classics. She is joined by a good friend of hers, Marienella Phillips, an already accomplished soprano in her own right, to compliment her with a very special programme that contains something for everyone who has even a modest appreciation of the current popular arias from some of the much loved classical operas.

As an example, click on this link to SEE and HEAR a recent recording made by Erin, of a popular aria from Il Barbiere di Siviglia

“New members welcome party” Wednesday 24th April 2019

The Chairman, Liz Turner, and Committee members invited new members to an evening event kindly hosted by Andrew Cutler.

This was a wonderful opportunity to meet many of the members who joined the Association in recent months. The Chairman has already received some very positive comments from those members that had attended and the general feeling was that the event was very worthwhile.
