Would be nice to see some southern based tMP ers at our forthcoming concert (my penultimate 'hurrah' conducting the band) at Beckenham Methodist Church, Bromley Road, Beckenham (served by Beckenham Junction BR from Victoria, and also trams) at 7.45. Programme to include two arrangements by tMP's very own straighmute (Prelude to the Te Deum - Charpentier - and La Rejouissance - Handel) as well as the following I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You (Bassman/Geldard) Serenata (Anderson/Freeh) Penny Lane (Lennon - McCartney/Barry) Sleeping Beauty Waltz (Tchaikovsky/Newsome) English Folk Song Suite (Vaughan Williams/F. Wright) and lots more besides. Tickets are (I believe) £5 with concessions. There'll be a raffle and interval refreshments. Be good to see you there.
