In a way much has happened since my previous message on 22 May 2020, then again, one could argue, very little has changed. We are still in lockdown, regular rehearsals cancelled and no possibility of live performance concerts on the horizon yet.
At the start of this season, in those ‘pre- Covid 19’ days of last September, I could never have dreamed I would be writing anything like this to you, the loyal supporters and friends of the YPC.
Not only are we missing making music for all of us to enjoy and benefit...
11th November means so much to so many and choosing appropriate music for a concert on that night is always a sensitive challenge, so the contrasting approaches of ‘Requiem’ by Maurice Durufle and ‘The Armed Man’ by Sir Karl Jenkins was the perfect choice.
