The next concert at the Bognor Regis Music Club on Saturday 9th November at 7pm will be given by the Pallant Piano Group, a circle of local pianists who come together to play to each other and who are mentored by Terry Allbright and Angela Zanders, both local performers and tutors at Chichester University.
The Pallant Piano Group was formed some seven years ago and meets at Music Club chairman Chris Coote’s house in Tangmere.
Performers taking part include Jack Adams, Alison Blenkinsop, Diana Bollam, Chris Coote, Neil Franks, Huw Griffiths, Catherine Harry, Camilla Hessenberg, Jack Izatt, Jan Lewis, Yuriko Luc, Rosemary Osmon, Alex Palmer, Carole Rogers, Louise Russell, Gilly Slot, Ian White, Fiona Willsher and Mark Zarb-Adami. Many different composers will be represented including Mozart, Haydn, Galuppi, Paradies, Chopin, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Bizet, Parry, Scriabin, Debussy, Elgar, Poulenc, and Eric Coates. Of special interest will be the Estampie from the Robertsbridge Codex, dating from 1360 and one of the earliest compositions for keyboard.
Music Club Chairman Chris Coote said: “We are delighted to welcome members of the Pallant Piano Group who are bringing a varied programme of short pieces they have been preparing in recent months. The Group benefits enormously from the expert tuition brought to us by Terry Allbright and Angela Zanders.“
The concert is at the Club’s concert room, 2 Sudley Road. Entry at the door is £6 for members, £8 for visitors, and £4 for students. New members and visitors are especially welcome.
