We are very pleased to post some of the pieces that were recorded at our concert in June of last year with The Ireland Trio. Pieces by Terence Allbright, Georgina Bowden, Phil Baker, Ric Graebner and Mike Stephenson. Many thanks to the musicians and composers who made the evening a success.
Our member, Lee Westwood has been commissioned through the ‘Portfolio’ scheme to write a new work for London-based choir MusArc, to be premiered this Summer at The Biscuit Factory, Bermondsey. In conjunction with this, Sound and Music have also made him one of their ‘New Voices’ featured composers for the period 2014-2015, and a selection of his works will be published by Composer’s Edition.
Congratulations to Lee
Also in March

Supported by the Arts Council and the Prince’s School Of Traditional Arts.
This year marks our 20th Anniversary, our first concert was on the 11 May 1994 and our next concert will be a Multimedia Concert at the Friends Meeting House Wednesday 19 March at 7.30pm. The programme will be announced as soon as we can and there is still time for members to submit a piece.
Later this year will also be a solo piano concert with Helen Burford, again at the Friends Meeting House in Brighton on Wednesday 3 September, programme to be announced (a submission form has just been sent to members, please let us know if you haven’t received one).
We’re hoping to announce some more concerts for this year and we also hope to institute some informal Salon concerts for members to play pieces in an informal setting, we’ll let members know once we have more details.
