Club Notes - Trio Con Brio Concert - 8 November 2017 PDF Print E-mail

Very many thanks for letting me know when you are not able to come to a concert - the demand is sometimes so enthusiastic that I have a waiting list for seats, so the sooner I know you are not coming the better. I appreciate that not all circumstances permit this. The Club benefits considerably from donations of the sale proceeds - many thanks for letting me know if they are to be donated, when you advise me that the seats are available. The artists also appreciate playing to the fullest possible house. We do our best to sell your returned seats. If your seats have been sold, the refund will be available at the following concert from the counter in the Winter Gardens in the interval or at the end of the concert.

It is with great sadness that I record the death of Bob on 17 September last. Bob joined our committee to take over from Charles Bainbridge the lengthy and sometimes difficult task of writing the detailed Programme Notes. This was a very different undertaking without today's computers and quite easy access to information, and even performance! It meant many visits to Leeds Lending Library for sheet music and scores and I recall that he even received from the inter-library scheme music from Paris to help him deal with a piece we were having! This care and attention to detail led to artists being so impressed that some asked for permission to use them elsewhere. This lasted for a remarkable 24 seasons – from September 1987 to May 2011; whilst over the same period Bob was also responsible for writing in the Ilkley Gazette the critique for each concert.
He took a very important role in designing programmes and helping choose artists for future seasons. With all this he contributed a great deal to the continued success of our concerts as well as being a very close friend whom I miss very much. David Pyett (ICC President)
