Last night's rehearsal

January 10th 2017

Dear All, I have been in touch with Adrian who has asked me, on his behalf to convey his apologies for his outburst prior to the break. Whilst he has apologized for the way he put his point across he has no regrets about the point he was trying to make, and I support him 100% in that. Bearing in mind the tortuous journey he had made given the transport chaos yesterday he was very frustrated when, trying to put across a valid point to help the Orchestra he was competing with other people’s conversations.& ...Continue Reading

The next rehearsal is on 9th Jan.At one time we did discuss having one tonight and if it’s still showing in your phone that probably means you downloaded a copy of the calendar at some stage instead of “subscribing”, or you did subscribe but you need to synchronise again.There is a page of instructions for different phones and mail clients here, linked from the bottom right of the members page:https://www.bromleysymphony.org/members/how-subscr ...Continue Reading
