Capital, capital !

Another busy week, what with the end of the school term (for me, at least), proofing my second book, arranging some music and conducting perhaps our most prestigeous concert of the year. And then, of course, there was the heat…

We never seem to be content with the weather – too cold, too much snow, too much rain, too hot…

Introducing an item via a retro-microphone.

Sunday evening on the Eastbourne Bandstand. For a change the wind was not blowing a gale, which meant that we had an audience of around 200+. Everyone played on top form and the concert was a great success, to the extent that the audience wanted and received an encore.

In full blow… Verdi’s “Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves”. Viva Verdi !

My Year 5/6 class performed “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (drastically simplified !) to an appreciative audience of parents and fellow pupils. My class worked really hard and I would have loved to show you some photos, but – these days being these days – their efforts will also have to remain but a midsummer day[s]dream. Nevertheless, well done to them all.

This week my very dear friend celebrated being around for 65 years ! It was quite a party, surrounded by friends and colleagues – and isn’t that what it’s all about ?

Happy Birthday !
The 65-er before the party really got going !

Capital, capital, my dear fellow ! Good point. Have you ever come to grips with the correct usage of capitals in the wonderful English language ? King Henry is one thing, but the king had other ideas, even if we know it was Henry. The president is late, but President Obama’s car will be here shortly.The prime minister has lost his script for the welcome, but, it is to be hoped, Prime Minister Cameron or even the deputy prime minister will find something to say…

And on that illuminating point, that will do for now.
