Grateful thanks to players for yet another amazing concert

June 16th 2019

Hi BSO friends, Just to say that have counted the money and astonished and thrilled to say that (without even counting the coins, of which there were many) it's up to £720 for Yemen, which is frankly much more than Simon and I dreamed that we'd get, on Father's Day. (Note to self: don't promote a concert on Father's Day!!! Def. impacts on audience numbers!!) That's without counting the coins. I just wanted a rough figure, so it WILL wind up being more. We owe a very great deal to: 1) ...Continue Reading

June 11th 2019

Hi, all, First, grateful thanks to those of you who have responded regarding the last chamber concert for the centenary, and also to those who have volunteered to donate to the crisis in Yemen but who can't come. Simon would love to have just one shrimpy little double bass for the Fireworks Music finale, if conceivably poss., though of course EVERYONE on EVERY instrument, is still most welcome. (But hey, we even have David on timps!!!) If you can't commit to showing up (stand, black trousers, ...Continue Reading

FW: Bromley Arts Council AGM 9th July 2019 7.30pm

June 7th 2019

Dear all Bromley Arts Council is seeking nominations for its Executive Committee – see attached together with minutes of last year’s AGM. I doubt anyone is interested in this but just in case. [Perhaps Paul now he has time on his hands?] BTW their minutes refer to a certain P Castle auditing their accounts. I wondered if this might be Peter Castle, Stanley’s son, who played the Bach Double concerto with his Dad at a BSO concert on 5.3.1988? Mike Mike Ibbott Director t +44 (0)20 72 ...Continue Reading

Hi all, Still waiting on a lot of people about the BSO centenary family-friendly concert on June 16th (Fireworks!!!) If you could let me know by Monday I'd be really grateful. PS I just received the following, from the English Symphony Orchestra I'm a member of - and we're playing in London for once - so just putting this out there in case anyone might be interested. As you can see from the poster, Pavel's violin IS blue - and looks electric - but that's only the varnish. There's a real story ...Continue Reading

Sorry about that. He was there. I suppose it is about the performance. Trouble is if we didn't get someone to come, perhaps would not have a review in musical opinion mag or online with this one.

Re: Concert review

May 20th 2019

Thanks for that Adrian. The reviewer can't have thought very much of the Orchestra, as he only mentions it in passing, while praising the soloists, who sat through most of it. Are you sure he was there? That is critics for you. Bernard.

Music Quiz at nex Sunday's Centenary Social

May 19th 2019

Dear all I am putting the finishing touches to what I hope will be a fun quiz for next Sunday's social. I had this idea from a similar gathering of the orchestra quite a few years ago. I have selected 40 works that we have played over the last 39 years with Adrian - not necessarily one per season, but certainly most seasons are included.. I have tried to give a slight bias towards repertoire covered over the last 20 years, as I know that those of us who have been here for a long time might be ...Continue Reading

May 19th 2019

Thank you one and all for last night. A terrific end to our centenary season. Marvelous playing and commitment to the vision in the music. Thanks to all our back stage staff and for the production of a superb history of the orchestra. We go on into another series of concerts, a wide range of music few orchestras can offer. I hope to see you at the reception. Have a fantastic summer and I look forward to working with you in the future. Adrian ...Continue Reading
