Many will have attended some of the Concerts in the West, a series which is now entering its 8th season. For me, these concerts brighten up Spring and Autumn with excellent young performers who are more used to playing in auditoriums like the Wigmore Hall in London than Lyme’s Marine Theatre.
However, listening to these wonderful young instrumentalists and singers in Lyme has some advantages: the setting (of course) and the closeness of the players when one can see every finger and bow movement.
This year, we have arranged that member’s of the Society have the advantage of a discount on the concerts. The discount is £1/per concert which also applies to the season ticket price.
Concerts In The West begins its 8th season in February. Full details of the programme can be found at www.concertsinthewest.org. Members of The Lyme Regis Society are invited to `A Season Preview` – a free, illustrated talk by John Bartholomew at The Marine Theatre on Wednesday January 30th from 4.00 to 5.30 p.m. Refreshments will be available.
I hope that you will attend some of the concerts and help to support classical music in Lyme Regis.
