    As I am looking forward to playing alongside you Charley! :wink: I'm sure it's going to be a great experience, as long as I don't bodge everything up for us! :D

    Got a really nice email from Yvonne today (thanks Yvonne if your reading this!), and i've taken a look at the official website of Felix the Cat in preparation!

    Talk soon Charley!

    Looks to be another interesting programme, Charley, and I'll try to get across for this one, especially with Alex appearing as well :wink:

    Only about a week to go and looking forward to rehearsing and performing the duet with young Alex.

    In December, Louise Wright from Portsmouth (who is prettier than both of us!) has agreed to be my guest and play a euphonium solo in Recital no.16.

    Nice to see that Charley has made a full recovery after his Op. and is back playing his Euphonium(s). Good luck to both Charley and Alex for tomorrows recital.
