Musical Director News

Thank you to all who came to the AGM in October.
The most important piece of information revealed at the AGM was the outcome of our months of searching for a new Musical Director.  Despite 8 notes of interest in the position and time spent interviewing and organising workshops, our search was unsuccessful. However, the good news is that John has decided not to leave us and will carry on indefinitely as our MD!
We are all delighted, and the news was greeted at the AGM with cheers and applause.  So all’s well that ends well!
