What you missed and what is coming up

The Annual General Meeting  8th November 2020 re – elected:

President:  Beverley Heard.

Secretary-Treasurer:  Nolan Martin retired after many years of assisting the society in this role.

Kirsty McMinn-Collard was nominated and accepted.

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

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

The Committee agreed to continue the $25 Membership Subscription  for the 9 Concerts planned for 2021.  This Subscription, together with the visitors’ donations,  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.

Membership Subscriptions may be paid at the monthly meeting.  Our preferred method of payment is  by direct credit to our HBS Bank a/c 031355 0675431 00.  (most banks will not be accepting cheques from early 2021.)

Non-members/Visitors  $4 per concert at the door.

2020 was a rather disrupted year for most people due to Covid 19.

The April, May, July and September concerts were all cancelled.

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

We look forward to 2021 and coming together to enjoy great music, alongside supporting local vocalists, musicians and groups in their performances.

First concert for 2020 14th March 2pm St Matthews,  features Wellington Vocal Soloists 

Lesley Graham Soprano

Linden Loader Mezzo soprano

Roger Wilson Baritone

Julie Coulson Accompanist 

The performers visited last in 2016, and they were meant to join us in 2020, but their concert was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid.  With the level 2 restrictions lifted in the Bay, the Hastings Music Society is delighted to welcome the group back to perform a special collection of songs.  We eagerly invite you to join us and enjoy this concert, to revel in beautiful music.
