Last night of the Proms

Stromenti thanks Doug Eyre, our new Honorary President, for introducing the last concert with his inimitable wit and delivery. He will be giving a repeat performance.

If you are totally baroqued, for some light relief, try "Last Night of the Boscombe Proms" tomorrow, Saturday at 7.30pm. For those who weren't willing to get drenched during the BSO fireworks proms, this is a chance to catch up with a miniaturized version featuring our three "Friends", accompanied by Stromenti in a programme of songs from around the UK and popular classics, including the traditional audience participation in Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory. Remember your Union Jack hats and flags.

Free parking both sides of the church; nice fair trade tea and coffee, and heating

Lully died because he hit his foot with a conducting baton which turned gangrenous. To honour his compatriot, and the French style of composing, Francois Couperin dedicated his 14 movement trio sonata "Apotheosis" to his memory.
Vitali's Chaconne for violin and organ has just joined the 100 works most listened to on Classic FM. On Tuesday night at 7.30pm, Jack Maguire will perform this piece in the eerie acoustic of St Clements Chancel behind the famous rood screen. Fiona switches to viola for Telemann's trio sonata and Joe, his Cello in Vivaldi's sonata. Handel's E major sonata for 2 violins and the other works are all accompanied by David Warwick on Britain's only working Claviorganum.

Please forward this to another music lover, preferably who doesn't own a conductors baton.

Concerts are supported by Boscombe Working Community Partnership, Bournemouth Arts and St Clements Church.
