Amici Rehearsal March 15th

Cari Amici,

Looking forward to tomorrows rehearsal when Mozart and Jenkins will be the focus of attention. As I suggested last week there remains only eleven rehearsals devoted to these two works prior to the performance on November 11 and it is essential that everyone wishing to sing is aware of this!! It will be a memorable occasion.

A reminder too of the recital by Trevor Pinnock on Thursday in St Gregory’s Centre for Music as part of the Canterbury Music Club 75th anniversary.Arguably one of the greatest musicians of our age, Trevor Pinnock will be joined by Jonathan Manson in a programme of the three three sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord by J. S. Bach, interspersed with harpsichord solos by Couperin and St Colombe. Tickets available on the web site or at the door…but early arrival recommended to ensure a seat.

Look forward to making music tomorrow.

Best wishes
