In September we start on our programme for the Annual  Remembrance Sunday Concert to be held at the West Cliff Theatre, Clacton on Sea on Sunday 13th November 2011 at 3pm.   Tickets will be available from the Theatre box office telephone 01255 433344, or if you would like to know more please contact Brenda Ellis on 01255 223455.  This concert, hosted by the ever Young Brothers,  is always a well attended, popular community event with flags and hankies to the fore, all this whilst raising money for local Forces Charities. We are delighted to be joined once again this year by the Cavender Singers, who will close the 1st half of the programme and open the second half of the programme.  Additionally this very talented small group of  Singers will be at hand to help the audience give voice to Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory.

  1. Just to say that I see many new faces in the orchestra-it must be some task to keep this ensemble tight with so many changes of personel-well done to all involved in this dedicated team.
    Brenda Ellis in her position as the general co-ordinator is somewhat akin to the stone which is placed within and above a brick built arch(I`m not saying she looks like an arch-it`s just an analogy!)-the whole structure gains strength and endurance from this important inclusion.
    The last concert, featuring the premier of the newly composed work by John Scott Cobb was a triumph.
    The orchestra encourages all musicians, no matter what their starting standard and this is to be applauded.
    Ruth continues to `soldier on` and is a great inspiration to all, not only in her musical ability, but her spiritual one and is always able to coax the best out of any situation.
    Once again-well done-I am truly proud to be assiciated with this fine group of musicians.

  2. Thanks for the Coffee Concert at “Heart’s Delight” Garden Centre. An enjoyable and relaxing occasion, with a good choice of pieces which showed off the talents of the players very well. Our three-year-old grandson Daniel enjoyed the music too (as did his parents), even though he needed to sit some distance away from the action!

  3. I had fully intended to be with you today,at `Hearts Delight`-but it was one of those days we all have, from time to time, where nothing seems to go as planned!
    Glad to see by Graham`s comments that all went well-I shall try to attend the next one.
