IMG_4649Season Ends On A High Note!

Sunday 29th November at the Village Hall
Sponsored by Andrew and Helen Clark

A near capacity audience escaped from the inclement weather and were entranced by the concert given by the four talented harpists, who were last in Rottingdean at the Music Festival in 2011. Led by the founder, Harriet Adie, they played a wide variety of music, much of it transposed for these instruments by Harriet with her co-founder Eleanor Turner, producing a unique sound and which demanded extreme virtuosity by the performers. As in their last concert, they played a contemporary piece, Mosquito Madness, written by Paul Patterson who introduced it himself.

At the end of the concert, Roy Wales, reviewed the year’s events and thanked all those involved in the organisation, as well as the Sponsors, Patrons and Friends for their support throughout the season. Plans are well advanced for a new Concert programme for 2016 and the details will be published early in the New Year.
