Summer Sights

Our Thanks To Keith

1st of September 2014

When Keith first suggested putting on My Fair Lady he could have had no idea how much work would be involved. Not only the usual effort of getting soloists and players to agree to take part, but writing all the music for each instrument, rehearsing the choir and trying to get the sound that he […]

Jo Rob
