Our next meeting will be this Monday, 27th February, when Jon Hampton will be presenting a fascinating insight into the colourful life of Alma Schindler – a woman who had an immense influence on music and the creative arts. Starting at 7:30 as usual and free parking outside the door.
We hope we will be able to welcome you on 27th February.
Secret Sibelius is the title of the last meeting of the 2021/22 season
We are delighted to welcome back Simon Coombs who is going to speak on the
subject of Sibelius and he will be focusing on the lesser known works by this famous composer. Like many composers, people are often familiar with the great works but there is often a hinterland of lesser known works which are worth listening to.
This is the last meeting of the current season so we look forward to meeting you at 7:30 as usual. Work is well advanced with the 2022/23 season and we will be producing a leaflet as usual in the summer.
The next meeting will be on Monday 22nd November which will be our Members’ Evening. There is still room for a few more pieces so if you have a piece on CD of around 10 minutes that you would like to bring and have played, please would you email Ed Tinline details quickly, so he can complete the play list.
As before we shall have an interval when we will offer tea or coffee, but you’re welcome to bring your own drink.
We ask all attending to follow the Covid safety measures we have in place including signing in and sanitising procedures on arrival, well spaced seating, wearing a mask, minimising moving around and maintaining social distancing. After this, our final meeting before Christmas will be on 6th December 2021 when: Ruth Barlow will present ‘Classical Music in Animations’ and invite us to join her in an end of term scamper through some cartoons with great classical music, including considering whether Fantasia was Mickey Mouse’s finest hour and listening to Tom and Jerry playing Liszt.
We hope you will be able to come on Monday 22nd November at 7.30 and to feel comfortable with the arrangements we plan to have in place.
The next meeting will be on Monday 27th September at 7:30 and will be a Members’ Evening for which the Committee will bring and introduce their choice of pieces.
The meeting will start with the Annual General Meeting.
We shall have an interval when we will be able to offer tea or coffee, but you’re welcome to bring your own drink. May we remind any member who has not yet joined for this season, that the membership fee is £20 as before, and that Ruth would be pleased to accept cash or a cheque payable to SRMS. The fee for occasional visitors continues at £3.
We have met staff at the Guides and agreed appropriate Covid safety measures which we ask all attending to follow. These will include sanitising procedures on arrival, well spaced seating, wearing a mask, minimising moving around and maintaining social distancing.
Copies of the full programme for the season will be available at the meeting. The next meeting will be on 11th October and will be presented by Peter Horwood.
We hope you will be able to come on Monday 27th September at 7.30 and to feel comfortable with the arrangements we plan to have in place.
We held our last meeting on Monday evening (10 May 2021) using a combination of Zoom and YouTube. It was a presentation by Ruth of a selection of humoresques. She said ‘a humoresque is not necessarily funny, but they do tend to have a whimsical, flippant character, and a general disregard for musical convention.’ You can listen to her selection – which is well worth while – by following this YouTube link: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDYYr-sXg1St6Iys2ElVT3tRHS-btqDs2
It has been a funny season where we have not of course, been able to meet. However, the online format has worked surprisingly well and has enabled a different perspective from our normal modus operandi. We have been able to see some of the performances as well as listen which does sometimes add to the experience. When we meet in person again – which we hope to do in the autumn – we plan to do more of the visual presentations using the screen the music room has installed.
Details of the 2021/22 programme are now being put together and will be posted here and in leaflet form around the town as before (Oxfam, TIC and Library).
We were planning to restart but new government restrictions and the rule of 6 has meant – along with many other organisations – we are unable to do so. Various ideas are being looked at and the committee has a meeting this Friday (18 September) to look at options. So for now, it means we shall not be restarting.
Previous post no longer valid.
[We shall be restarting on 5th October at a new venue! This will enable us to meet Covid 19 requirements. Details later today!]
We need hardly note that the programme at the start of this year had to be abandoned so it is with pleasure that – tentatively at least – we hope to restart in the Autumn with a programme up to Christmas. The first session will be on Monday 21 September and will be The Legend of Orpheus and the Birth of Opera by Jeremy Barlow.
Starting at 7:30 as usual and at the usual place which if you haven’t been before is at the rear of the Guide’s Centre in St Ann St. By car go down to the end of Exeter St and left before the roundabout into Carmalite Way. Then left and almost back to St Ann St and there are some green gates on the left into a free car park. Access is easy for those with disabilities.
It is a modest £3 for non-members.
Please keep an eye on this site or on Facebook in case we have to cancel.
Once we have finalised the remaining evenings we will post the full programme here.
Look forward to seeing you or welcoming new members in September!
The next meeting of the Society on Monday 29th April2019 and will be a members’ evening. Usual place and usual time, 7:30. A reminder if you are not a member that there is free parking just outside the door.
The following meeting on 29th April is a members’ evening so please bring along a suggestion for playing. No more than 10 minutes (including any introduction) it will help Tony to put together a programme for the evening.
The next meeting of the Salisbury Recorded Music Society will be held on Monday 1st April 2019 at 7.30pm in our usual venue, when Ed Tinline will be presenting The trumpet (and other brass) shall sound – a focus on the brass section from Handel onwards. Given the date, although it will be a bit late in the day for tricks as such, Ed hopes to include a little musical humour during the evening.
