“Spring is Sprung…

…the grass is riz”

I wonder where that little silly poem originated. Anyone know? Anyway, it’s March and as always, it’s a busy month.

Musically there is a CHANDOS concert on Sunday March 18th at 7.45pm in Malvern; Malcolm Arnold Symphony no 5 and the wonderful but devastatingly sad Tchaikovsky Symphony no. 6 which he finished only 3 days before he drank the fabled cholera-ridden water and died. I’ve put a link to the book-online page HERE.

The following week, I’m playing cello in MERRIE ENGLAND for Great Witley Operatics at the Swan Theatre Worcester.

Besides all that, I’ve just put my house up for sale because, although I love it, where it is, the garden, the view etc etc – I am in danger of drying up as a musician because in a terraced house, I just don’t feel I can annoy my neighbours with my own music on top of that of my private pupils. So I rarely play at home or even listen to my vast collection of CDs. So if anyone wants a beautiful comfortable home at a reasonable price!! THIS is it!

And if anyone has a house they don’t want, in this area, large enough and detached enough for me to sing in at the top of my fairly loud voice (or a few thousands of pounds they don’t need to help me out of this dilemma!) please contact me!

Well, no harm in asking! 😉
