Rochdale MUSIC Society

JUNE  2021

  • All being well, our Concerts will resume on 9 October!  BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO USE THE HEYWOOD CIVIC CENTRE, because it will not be being made available for use other than as a COVID vaccination and testing centre until further notice.

So other arrangements for the concert venues in October and December will have to be made.
The series is planned as advertised below.
Please make a note of the dates. We'll let you know when tickets are on sale and where the venues are going to be.

For summer listening 2021:

PASTORALE D'ÉTÉ - Honegger, a delicious musical morsel which I hope will tempt you to listen to more of Honegger's much underrated music. - Graham Marshall

JOHN PEACE  A thoughful performance of this classic by one of our artists and a NW orchestra:-

UGNIUS PAULIUKONIS will be playing for us on 6 FEBRUARY 2021.

Here he is playing Debussy: 

HERE'S YOUR OPPORTUNITY  to attend a live concert to be given on Wednesday, 11 November, at 1.00pm.  The Meraki Duo, Meera Maharaj (Fluite) and James Girling (Guitar), is due to perform for us in Heywood Civic Centre on 17 April.

Meera says of it: "It's a South American themed programme and we're premiering a piece written for us by Brazilian composer, Rafael Marino Arcaro. Can't wait to share it with everyone as he really is a brilliant composer. There'll also be some Villa Lobos, as well as music by Bolivian and Argentinian composers. 

It's part of an ongoing series at 1901 Arts Club (set up by my duo partner, Dom Degavino) and the streams have been going well so far!."

Should be great!

Remember LUKA OKROS? HIs brilliant keyboard display this last season will no doubt be experienced again next season - in May 2020.
