So far, we have been unable to meet this year. Whilst some Groups have been able to meet on Zoom, Music Appreciation does not lend itself to Zoom Meetings. Andrea has been busy researching Bach and put together an excellent programme, which we should all enjoy when we are able to meet as a Group again. Last year, we had a very varied programme exploring music by Elgar, Clara Schumann, Berlioz, Mendelssohn, King Henry V111, Johann Strauss (both the Younger and the Elder) and Bizet. In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Music is the universal language of mankind.”
All Group members will be contacted as soon as we are able to meet again.
Sue Humphrey and Maura Chapman.
