What you missed and what is coming up

2023 Committee

President:  Beverley Heard.

Secretary-Treasurer:  Kirsty McMinn-Collard

Committee: Karen Edwards, Margaret Steer, Elizabeth Carr(with power to add).

*                                   ******************

The Committee agreed to continue providing a Membership Subscription  for the 9 Concerts planned for 2023.  This subscription will now be $30 per year per member.  Subscriptions, together with the visitors’ door sales,  meets the basic costs of the Society and will hopefully, enable us to continue to foster young musicians in their development with the donations  they graciously receive.  We are  grateful to hold our concerts in the beautiful St Matthews Church.  Unfortunately due to increasing energy costs the monthly hire has increased.   The slight increase in subscription fees helps to offset this cost.

Membership Subscriptions may be paid in cash at the monthly meeting, however our preferred method of payment is  by direct credit to our HBS Bank a/c 031355 0675431 00.  The committee would also appreciate the subscription payments early in 2023 please.

Non-members/Visitors  $5 per concert at the door.

Please do not attend our concerts if you are feeling unwell.
