Music Group

An Update of the U3A Music Group

Which last met on the 3rd of July-in Orphir-

Our theme this time was "Men",as the previous time we had selected "Women"-

With a break for coffee and Eccles cakes,we listened to a varied mix-

A few of the members had chosen Countertenors-as a result we had quite a few different voices in that range to listen to-

They included-Alfred Dellor,Max Emanuel Cencic,David Daniels and Tim Read-

Also heard were Peter Pears,Woodie Guthrie,Aled Jones,The Young Uns,Boccelli,Avital,Dick Gaughin (sp?),Andy Williams,and a historic piano played by Alec Cobbe from his large collection of antique pianos at Hatchlands Park in Surrey - This piano was once owned By Elgar-

The August meeting of the group will be in Orphir and we have chosen as our theme"Harps"-we have a couple of emebers who are students of the harp-we hope for a live performance one day!

We invite anyone who is interested in this subject to join us-try us out-we always learn something new-

We extend a welcome-it may be possible to give a lift  from Kirkwall-
