Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Dear CGO Members,
Valerie and I just wanted to wish everyone a merry Christmas and happy new year.
Valerie also adds:
“A big thank you to Michael for organising our Christmas dinner & running it. Also, thank you to everyone who contributed with food & drink and helped after to clean up.
I look forward to seeing you all in January and working on our repertoire for the summer recitals.
What we will rehearse in January: Wild Mountain Thyme, Christmas Carol (to record in Feb), Purcell, Dulcinea, break, 2 Themes, Tren Urbano (we’re removed the intro), Fairy Pools, The Elephant.
I will bring brownies to celebrate the New Year at tea time.
During our [Christmas] break I will work on thickening up Tren Urbano and I will re-write Mat’s cadenza again.
As mentioned at the last rehearsal, Classical Minds Festival is 14-15 March, and CGO members get a 10% discount. Yea!
Application is on line with information, bio’s, event schedule, and general schedule.
Feel free to email me at if you have any questions. Have a wonderful holiday.”
Also please note that CGO gets quite a lots of emails to our address. There’s a lot of junk, but occasionally we get items of interest and I’m now posting those to
so please do take a look from time to time.
