For bohemians everywhere

21 YEARS AGO St Pauls School

21 Years Ago

21 Years Ago

In April a party of fifteen children with Rosemary Fleet and myself travelled to Sweden to take part in a music seminar at Lund University near Malmö and give several concerts in schools. It was another wonderful experience of generous hospitality and warm friendship. The children were, as always, most creditable ambassadors for Britain. We returned by boat from Gothenburg to Harwich, a 26-hour crossing, on the day of a violent hurricane which also unfortunately damaged the school’s solar panels. However, we arrived back safely, even if one or two felt a little squeamish, and our solar panels are to be repaired in time for the summer, which must come soon! In July we shall once again be providing the Choir for the professional production of ‘Joseph’ at the White Rock Theatre which last year broke all records. If you missed it then – come again! If you missed it then … don’t miss it this time! In the same week we shall again be in the Finals of the National Festival of Music for Youth at the Royal Festival Hall, London, when we shall be performing a delightful musical drama all about Hastings, written by Rosemary Fleet, entitled “Seascapes”. In the past twelve months we have donated nearly £2000 to charity, but now we must concentrate on our much needed School Fund. On Monday June 9th we shall be giving a concert at the White Rock Theatre which shall include “Seascapes” and also an original musical “Big G” (Goliath) – words by one of our parents, Douglas Verrall. Tickets can be obtained at the White Rock Theatre.
