                         NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2022

Dear All,

 I hope most of you were able to enjoy the Machynlleth Festival 2022.  As always it was truly a feast of music with some memorable highlights. It would be lovely if you would share your memorable moments with me and would help with future programming.

We were delighted that the BBC recorded four concerts this year which will be broadcast on Radio Three this week beginning today. The BBC team thoroughly enjoyed their time with us, the welcome and extra the lengths the Tabernacle went to to make things work for them.

The links are below for the four concerts. file:///.file/id=6571367.46800044                           file:///.file/id=6571367.46800069                                                  file:///.file/ id=6571367.46800098                     file:///.file/id=6571367.46800114

We hope you enjoyed our last two concerts. It has been a privilege to welcome musicians to our concerts at Y Tabernacl again, and thank you for making them so welcome.

For our final concert in our “mini series” we welcome back rising star, Dominic Degavino, piano. He wowed us all with his accompanying skills for the Tom Mathias concert and I am sure his afternoon recital will be no exception. You may even have heard him at the Hay Festival. A full biography can be found on our website.

I am sure this will be a wonderful afternoon of music so please spread the word and come and enjoy. Tickets are £10 on the door (cash and cheques only) and free for under 18’s.

              NEWSLETTER.                         MARCH 2022

Dear Members,

It is wonderful to say “Welcome back!” The committee has been working hard to present a series of concerts, relaunch the Club and celebrate a return to Concerts at Y Tabernacl. So many musicians have kept in touch and it is a privilege to honour the concerts held over.

We will not ask for a subscription until the usual series beginning in the Autumn and instead will charge for each concert on the door. The first concert is a free concert with a retiring collection.

Committee. We have a dedicated team who work hard to present our concerts. We urgently need help here. The position of Treasurer is vacant and essential to our functioning as a club and charity. We also need help with stewarding and refreshments on the day of concerts.

Please contact me if you are able to help:  or 01654781304 / 07710452767.
