Music of Schubert

NB the programme says 4 October which is incorrect – it is tonight 2nd.

The title of the next meeting is Music from the Schubert Centenary International Composers’ contest of 1928.  It will be presented by Robin Lim and starts at 7:30 in the usual place on Monday 2 October.  Visitors are welcome and there is a modest fee of £3 to cover our expenses.  The evening will start with a brief agm.

[If you saw the piece in last week’s Salisbury Journal, that referred to the previous meeting on Busoni but the item was held over]



First meeting tonight

The first meeting of the new season starts tonight, 18 September, in the usual place at the usual time.  It will be a presentation on Busoni by Christopher Guild.  The full programme for the coming season is available at the Collector’s Room in Castle Street, the Tourism Information Centre in Fish Row and the Oxfam Music Room in Catherine Street.  It is also available to print yourself from our previous blog post.

Programme available

The new programme for 2017/18 now available

The Committee has now put together the new programme for the coming 2017/18 season and a pdf version is available below for you to print.  Copies will be available at the first meeting which takes place on 18th of this month and also at the Collector’s Room in Endless Street, Oxfam Music Room in Catherine St. and in the Tourism Information Office in Fish Row.

It is an interesting and diverse programme and includes a speaker from the Vaughan Williams Society.  Bach, Busoni, Shostakovich and Schubert all feature as well as a presentation on Scottish music and music for wind instruments.

On the subject of the leaflet, if you are able to distribute them near to where you live or elsewhere that would be helpful.  If you are for example a member of a choir or other music society, why not ask if you can leave some for members to see?  Or leave some copies in the village hall or in one of the local libraries eg Tisbury; Wilton or Amesbury.

We look forward to seeing you on 18th in the usual place and if you are not a member and would like to give a meeting a try, it is only £3 for the evening.
