Coates concert thanks

MAY I take this opportunity to say thankyou to everyone who supported our recent concert. Especially another full-house audience to hear the Boots Orchestra celebrate the 125th anniversary of Eric Coates’s birth.

Thanks to the Central Methodist Church in Hucknall for being our hosts, to Gill Sanders and Kim Godden, orchestra conductors John Sheppard and Don West and those society members who helped the smooth running of the event. Thanks also to Hucknall Library and Hallmark Cards.

It is now confirmed that Saturday October 9 2012 at 2 pm is the date of our next concert at the Central Methodist Church, with the special appearance of Japanese classical pianist Haruko Seki, who includes some of Eric’s music in her programme.

This year’s concert DVD has now been produced, and will be available immediately.

It includes the footage from the unveiling of the Blue Heritage Plaque on Eric’s former home at Tenter Hill, Hucknall by Ann Smith. Yet another chapter in Hucknall’s history.

GEOFF SHELDON,

Chairman,

Eric Coates Society,

Hucknall.
