MSC NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2018
President John’ Report for August.
Hi to you all, and thank you those members for supporting the August concert. Guests were well received and the mystery guest, long time
broadcaster, now retired, Brian O’Flaherty’s stirring performance of reviewing the situation, was tops. All in all it was just a great evening.
Council notes: Letter received from Bert Parsonage’s siblings,
along with his rule book. Bert was a member from 1986 to 2006. The fence to be repaired on the east side of the hall and front steps to be painted with non-slip paint. The sign in book seems to be working, BUT some lights around the hall have been found
left on particularly in the men’s toilets. PLEASE if you use the hall check that all lights are off. It was mention that the clubs financial position is sound, nice one. Those on the raid keep your money coming into the raid a/c, only a month
till we head away. While I have mentioned money, there are still some subs outstanding; it would be great if these could be attended to so our treasurer can sign
of our membership for the year. Do not forget to mark on your calendar Public concert 4th November at Globe theatre. Also 24th November, clubs end of year dinner to be
held at historic Kaingahou Estate. Take care all and see you at the September concert, when we will present our annual youth music award. Regards John.
Report: from Steve Allan Public concert convener.
almost too soon but I’m already counting down the weeks, (eleven,) to the concert to be held 4th November at 1.30.p.m. at the Globe theatre. This week the performer selection panel will be meeting to agree on
the program for the cast of 18, comprising of groups, skits and solo vocal and instrumental performers. The program will be drafted by the end of August. Those performers already contacted can expect another call to confirm the pieces they wish to perform,
accompanist requirements, and duration of act. I’m looking forward to a real diversity of material.
Four weeks before the concert, - on Sunday 7th October at 1.30.pm a staging practice will
be held at our club rooms and a full dress rehearsal on. Sunday 28th October at 1.30.pm.
