Maggini (1)


One small step...
Reporting from the concert

The concert last evening (Friday, 7th October) was excellent. A turnout of about sixty ( numbers yet to be confirmed ) with a number of new faces. The Maggini Quartet played brilliantly and their musical interaction was extremely good. Comments during the break and afterwards all confirmed that attendees liked the venue, were impressed by the acoustics, were impressed by the Quartet, enjoyed the preconcert talk and the introduction to each piece by a member of the Quartet. The team on the door somehow managed to cope with the numbers and it will be a lot easier in the future as last night a lot of Friends and Members were renewing their membership as well as paying for tickets. Special Thanks to the audience for bearing with us. It was also nice to welcome back David and Teresa Oliver and to have previous Committee members, John Shaw and Brian Warmington.

A big thank you to all...and special thanks to Julian Leaper and his fellow musicians in the quartet to provide such a delightful musical on to the next...
