Below is a message from Charles Paterson who, until recently, was Music Director of BLCS.
He has now moved to the Isle of Wight and, as you will see from his message, is settling in to the musical life of the island! It certainly looks as if he will be kept busy!
Here we have settled in well, thanks, and have enjoyed a wonderful summer finding lots of places to see and things to do. I am gradually getting involved in musical life: apart from our season tickets for the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra (mostly amateur, but very high standard) and The West Wight Arts Association (professional) chamber music seasons, I am now MD of a small choir, Cantus Vesperi, who sing Choral Evensong at churches across the island, and have applied for the vacant MDship of the Orpheus Singers, a choral society not unlike BLCS! I also have a couple of Sunday service organ playing bookings in the next month or two, so things are moving.
