We’re happy to advertise events in which our members are taking part, provided that they have some general musical or theatrical interest, and to showcase shows and concerts being run by other local societies. All we need is to have information and an image, and preferably also a web link.
If you have an event to share, please email Martin.
Invitation to Venice
Our friends in Kirkcaldy G&S Society are pushing out those gondolas at the Adam Smith Theatre from Thursday 5 March to Saturday 7 March, evenings at 7.30pm plus a 2.30pm matinée on the Saturday.
Once more the show direction will be in the secure hands of Robin Ożóg, both as director and in his stage role as Don Alhambra del Bolero, pulling all the strings! Remarkably, Robin will then have played every one of the gentlemen principal parts in the opera!
Other well-kent faces from our “Meet the Stars” pages are Michael McFarlane as The Duke of Plaza-Toro, Nick Temperley as Marco Palmieri, Jack Archibald as Antonio, and Sinead Black as Fiametta, with Sharon Edgar, a loyal member of our chorus, as Vittoria.
Ask any of these friends to get you tickets, or you can buy from the Society Box Office (07870 901606), online at http://www.kirkgandss.co.uk/, or the Theatre Box Office (01592 583302). And you can see what fun they’ve been having on their Facebook page!
Family connections for Spring
What a bargain! Varied programme: a Mozart Horn Concerto; a specially commissioned Concerto for Orchestra by John Gourlay (oboist in our HMS Pinafore orchestra) plus other music to showcase the instrument families within the large orchestra. More details if you click the image.
Ellen Patrick says it’s sounding good! (You can pay £9 a ticket for the Old Kirk of Kirkcaldy concert on Sunday 22 March if you prefer)
A rare opportunity!
Support The Soko Fund’s work in Malawi, and enjoy a rare opportunity to hear (or even sing in!) Dvorak’s Mass in D minor conducted by John Kitchin at St Cuthbert’s Church, Edinburgh on 29 February – rehearsals 2.00–5.00pm; concert at 6.00pm. Details on the flier linked to the image.
Bunthorne’s words come to mind: “Come, walk up, and purchase with avidity, overcome your diffidence and natural timidity, tickets … should be purchased with rapidity … – Such an opportunity may not occur again!”
