THANK  YOU
A big thank you to you all for taking the change of venue for the Castalian String Quartet in your stride. The Corn Exchange redevelopment has been such a major project some issues are inevitable. In this case it was a problem with the raked seating which arose on the Saturday, too late to get the engineers out for the Sunday morning concert.

Tickets are available from the Brighton Dome Box Office (01273 709709) or online at https://brightondome.org. Tickets cost £20 for a single concert, £18 concessions.

MEMBERSHIP
Welcome to several music lovers who joined Strings Attached at the January concert and thank you again to everyone who has renewed their membership for this season. If you haven’t already done so you can still renew for the year to 31 July 2024. The annual fee remains at £10 and is free for students.

The online membership form can be found at https://www.stringsattachedmusic.org.uk/friends/ and is easily completed and submitted online. Alternatively, you can download a pdf of the membership form using the same link to the Friends page. Complete the pdf form and either post to the address on the form or attach it to an email to c.e.moon@btinternet.com.  If you can, payment by bank transfer is far more convenient for us than payment by cheque. Please use your surname as the reference. For Gift Aid purposes please complete one form for each person.

As in previous years, we’d be happy to put anyone requiring a lift in touch with those willing to offer one. Members in either category should contact Margaret Polmear at m.polmear@btinternet.com who will do her best to help.
