Notice of the Annual General Meeting
Odysseus Piano Trio
If it's not already in your diary please make a note to come to the final concert of our current season on Saturday 29th April.
We are delighted to welcome three well known and distinguished musicians, Robin Green (Piano), Sara Trickey (Violin) and Rosie Biss (Cello) who together formed the Odysseus Piano Trio in 2015. The Trio has developed a reputation as one of the most dynamic and distinctive ensembles to emerge in recent years. and have performed in many prestigious venues including Kings Place, The Conway Hall, Trinity Hall Cambridge, St David's Hall Cardiff and perform regularly in music festivals and for many leading chamber music societies across the UK.
Their programme for the Whitstable Music Society concert on 29th April is:
"I don't believe it!" as Victor Meldrew would have said if he had been on our mailing list and just seen the programme!
Do come and join us with your friends for what will be a memorable last concert of the season.
To Members and Friends,
They frequently comment on how hospitable, friendly, receptive and attentive you are as an audience, and they have a high regard for our venue with its wonderful acoustics, “perfect for chamber music” they often say.
Curiously these concerts don’t actually organize themselves. Instead there is a small friendly committee who work behind the scenes to make all this happen. Fortunately the work is made to seem quite easy because our committee works well together which really does make our task enjoyable and not at all like “work”. We tend to meet four times a year in convivial surroundings.
We are very happy to remain in our current roles though realize we need to continue to plan ahead for the future wellbeing of the Society. With this in mind we are looking to strengthen our team with a few more people who would be willing to contribute alongside us, ensuring that we always have the resources to sustain the activities and reputation of the Society into the future.
The key activities we currently manage are:
So if you think you would be interested in helping the good work of our Society either as part of our committee or perhaps in a more informal way then please contact me for an informal chat.
With all best wishes
Gill Smyth, Christopher Palmer, Ian Cooke, Sara Wheeler,
The Whitstable Music Society Committee
