Dear Members and Friends
Sat 9th September will be the last night of The BBC Proms and what a fantastic series of Promenade Concerts 2017 has produced. Traditionally one feels that with the last night of the Proms, as the schools go back, the summer is coming to an end - but fear not!
The Whitstable Music Society starts its 2017/18 season on Saturday 30th September with a wonderful recital from the Sacconi Quartet. The Sacconi is one of those ensembles that regularly return to Whitstable “by popular demand.”
Many of our members will already know that the award-winning Sacconi Quartet is recognised for its unanimous and compelling ensemble, consistently communicating with a fresh and imaginative approach. Performing with style and commitment, the Quartet is known throughout the world for its creativity and integrity of interpretation. Formed in 2001, its four founder members continue to demonstrate a shared passion for string quartet repertoire, infectiously reaching out to audiences with their energy and enthusiasm. The Quartet has enjoyed a highly successful international career, performing regularly throughout Europe, at London’s major venues, in recordings and on radio broadcasts.
The quartet will be playing works by Haydn, Jonathon Dove (Piano Quintet with Charles Owen) and the Dvorak Piano Quintet (again with Charles Owen)
More information on this and the other concerts we have planned for the current season are is now available on our new website.
Since our last concert at the end of April 2017 the committee have been working on this our new website. Thanks to all the members of the committee for the hard work they have put in to develop our website which we hope will help promote the society to a wider audience.
