This month’s edition discusses:
• Our next event with The Champagne Quartet will be going ahead as planned on 15th September. A wonderful way to celebrate the start of our Autumn season!
• The additional event with Ashworth & Rattenbury Guitars will be going ahead on 22nd September.
• The Autumn programme is confirmed. The subscription for this series is £40, for members re-joining and new members. See the CMS website for full details.
Our Autumn season gets off to a strong start on 15th September with The Champagne Quartet and on 22nd September with the postponed lecture/recital from Ashworth & Rattenbury Guitars. Non-members can subscribe for these and the October and November concerts at a special rate of £40. As was the case last year, members will receive full credit for any cancelled events against the cost of next year’s renewal.
The AGM was held on 9th June, preceding the concert with Tanya Ursova and Anna Gorbachyova. The Report and Accounts for 2020 were distributed to members during April. The accounts have now been examined by the Society’s Independent Examiner and some small changes made, the deficit has been reduced by £211 to £9504 for the year. A copy of the final accounts is available here.
Whilst we hope to be back to normal in the autumn with a full audience and interval refreshments, given the ongoing situation our programme may be subject to disruption and we will continue to live stream all our events.
This has been a very difficult year for our Society but fortunately, due to the support of members and generosity of donors, our financial position is secure. The Committee has developed an excellent programme for 2022 including some new faces as well as established friends. Full details will be published soon.
I look forward to seeing you all again on 15th September!
